Description

Characteristics and tasting tips for Château Clerc Milon 2023

Tasting

Colour
The colour is of a beautiful red hue, enhanced by garnet reflections.

Nose
Of beautiful elegance, the nose exudes fruity fragrances (blueberry, blackcurrant), woody (cedar) and peppery.

Palate
A smooth and precise attack gives way to a palate whose race tannic structure confers a rare complexity. As the tasting progresses, the palate reveals its richness through a dense texture, its brilliant fruit, its persistent freshness as well as aromas of cocoa bean and liquorice.

The vivacity and balance of a fine Pauillac red wine

The estate

With origins dating back to the 18th century when the estate was included in the domains of the Seigneurie de Lafite, the Château Clerc Milon takes its name from the Clerc family who owned the hamlet of Pauillac where the Château Milon was located. In 1970, Baron Philippe de Rothschild decided to acquire this Grand Cru Classé in 1855 in order to reveal the full potential of this great terroir on the left bank of Bordeaux. Today, the 3rd generation embodied by Camille and Philippe Sereys de Rothschild, and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild carries the values and know-how of Baron Philippe de Rothschild and continues to develop Château Clerc Milon with the same dynamism and desire for modernity. Thanks to continuous work for more than 50 years, as well as a dedicated team with state-of-the-art technical facilities, Château Clerc Milon is more than ever a reference for Médoc excellence. 

The vineyard

The Château Clerc Milon is a Pauillac wine from a 41-hectare vineyard, a large part of which is located on the Mousset ridge overlooking the Gironde. Located in the north-eastern part of the Pauillac appellation, this terroir consists of sandy gravel soils, based on a clay-limestone bedrock outcropping on the eastern part of the estate. The proximity of the Gironde combined with the relief of the vineyard creates a unique topography and microclimate.

The vintage

Mild and relatively humid, the spring promotes rapid vegetative growth. The bud burst in early April is not impacted by the frost episode at this time. Flowering is recorded at the end of May with a 5-day lead. Despite a June recognised as the hottest since 1962, the vineyard maintains its lead. The end of summer is punctuated by two heatwave episodes at the end of August and the beginning of September before the start of the harvest, which is partly carried out under unstable conditions.
