Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, April 2009, Score: 89-92

A bigger wine than Armailhac, the 2008 Clerc Milon displays a bold, velvety palate and a cornucopia of jammy, red berry fruit (no doubt from its notable 40% Merlot). Despite its curves, it has impressive power - round yet robust.

Producer

Château Clerc Milon

In a brilliant location, next to Lafite and Mouton, Clerc Milon is another château in the famedMouton Rothschild trinity. Since 1985, it has done much work to improve its quality through bettervineyard management, better winemaking and by adding a higher percentage of Merlot to createfriendlier, yet more concentrated bottlings.Over the years, it has become a favourite of Robert Parker who often regards this château as "a must buy".

Region

Pauillac, Red Bordeaux

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
