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.
88-90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998
Very good red-ruby. Redcurrant, blueberry, and lead pencil on the aromatic nose. Tighter in the mouth than the Armailhac; gives an impression of higher acidity and more aggressive structure. But opened nicely to show good black cherry and cassis fruit. Finer and more delineated than the above.
