Chateau Clerc Milon 1995
The wine is a lovely, dark garnet red, starting to shade slightly at the rim, while the nose, redolent of youth, unfolds layers of roast coffee and liquorice before developing clean aromas of stewed fruit and blackberry.
On the palate, a precise and chiselled attack gives way to close-knit, stylish tannins, still full of youth. The flavours on the palate recall the aromas of the nose and are given additional refinement by discreet notes of ripe fruit and blond tobacco. Admirably long on the palate, this beautifully balanced.

A legendary terroir, prestigious neighbours, a providential encounter: the history and the success of Château Clerc Milon are summed up in these three words. The terroir is that of Pauillac, where some of the world’s finest wines are made. The neighbours are Mouton and Lafite, illustrious First Growths whose nearby vines can be seen from the terrace of the Château. The encounter was with Baron Philippe, who in 1970 acquired the then badly neglected estate and decided to restore it to its status as a Classified Growth.
Now, thanks to Baroness Philippine, Clerc Milon, one of the most highly regarded châteaux in the Bordeaux region, can boast technical facilities and reception areas worthy of its reputation.
