Bordeaux Book(1998) | 90

The 1986 is among the greatest Clerc-Milon in my memory, and continues to represent one of the better values of the 1986 vintage. Dark ruby/purple with a super bouquet of sweet, toasty new oak, plums, black currants, licorice, and cedar, on the palate, the wine is very concentrated, rich and powerful, yet atypically soft and fleshy for a 1986. While this wine should age well for another two decades, it can be drunk much earlier than many of the 1986 Pauillacs. It is a sleeper of the vintage.

Seductively rich and supple with layers of elegant plum, cherry and currant flavors that are beautifully defined before the tannins kick in on the finish. The notes linger on and on.

About This Producer


A fifth-growth chateau that consistently outperforms its rank, Clerc-Milon is part of the famous Rothschild family of estates. Purchased by Baron Philippe for a song in 1970 after it had fallen into extreme disrepair, the property saw a period of investment and re-habilitation and began again putting out quality wines in the early 1980s. Located in the northernmost region of the Pauillac appellation between Mouton-Rothschild and Lafite-Rothschild, Clerc-Milon is comprised of 43 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Camernere. Over recent years, Cabernet plantings have decreased, being replaced with more Merlot. The 14,000 case production is dominated by Cabernet, giving it firm structure and age-ability.
