Chateau Clerc Milon 1998
A very dense, dark garnet red, the colour has evolved as one would expect.
Initially discreet, the nose opens with airing to reveal warm aromas of black cherry, humus and delicate oak on vanilla and cigar-box notes.
A supple attack paves the way for powerful, fully mature tannins. The palate, substantial and invigorating, shows good balance, leading into a fresh and mineral finish.
50% Cabernet Sauvignon
|14% Cabernet Franc|
|3% Petit Verdot|
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.
