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.
89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2005
($30-$39) Good full ruby-red. Expressive aromas of currant, graphite, smoke, leather and game. Distinctly lusher than the 2004 but with a restrained sweetness. A fairly large-scaled Clerc-Milon that finishes with substantial toothdusting tannins.
