  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($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.

    ÿA bit sweet and more suppressed than the other wines from the Mouton stable, d'Armailhac and Petit Mouton. Just slightly more tarty. Tarry. Not as ambitious as the first two in this flight, but the wine has an attractive dry finish.

    Cedar, burning embers, licorice, black currants, and espresso notes jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple-colored, firm, tannic, powerful, and muscular style of Clerc-Milon. Quite virile, a bit angular, but at the same time packed and stacked, full and concentrated, this impressive blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot actually has higher alcohol (13.2%) than the 2003.

    This shows good blackberry, licorice and tobacco aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Needs time to mellow. 6,665 cases made.

    This wine started slowly but developed into a deceptively complex wine that was gorgeous! Straight out of the bottle, it was initially light bodied and slightly acidic. However, it developed and showed great complexity with pineapple, pepper, guava, plum, cherry and nutmeg on the palate. As it was drunk it continued to develop. An excellent wine.

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.
