About Chateau Clerc Milon
In 1970, the Rothschild family purchased Chateau Clerc Milon and gave it new life (the Fifth Growth estate had been suffering for years because of legal battles concerning ownership). Stainless steel vats were installed in the winery, new oak was introduced into the barrels and, as you might imagine, quality quickly improved.
87-89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1999
Black ruby-purple. Austere aromas of cassis and licorice. Primary and unevolved, but finer than the above. Here the substantial tannins are more thoroughly buffered by fruit, giving the wine a sweeter, more pliant finish. Perhaps in the line of the '88.
