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.
87-90 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012
(54% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot, 7% cabernet franc, 1% petit verdot and 1% carmenère): Bright deep ruby-purple. Gorgeous nose combines fresh blackberry, blackcurrant syrup and aromatic herbs, lifted by a floral note. Enters bright and fresh, displaying lovely purity and precision to its juicy red and black fruit flavors. Finishes long and crisp, with smooth tannins and a delicate herbal nuance that does not detract from the wine's pleasure. Not a blockbuster Clerc Milon but one that relies on finesse and juicy acidity for its appeal.
