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 - July/August 2011
Bright, dark red. Musky currant, pepper and mint, with a note of raspberry emerging with air. Supple, spicy and concentrated, with dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors complicated by a saline nuance. Good inner-mouth energy here. Finishes long, with a sweet dusting of tannins.
