Chateau Clerc Milon 2000
A very deep and dense purple, the wine has a powerful and elegant nose on opulent aromas of black fruit macerated in spirits, together with notes of mint and camphor, tobacco and mocha.
The attack is immediately unctuous and smooth, the texture very dense, with robust, forward tannins. It lingers pleasantly on the palate, sustained by the macerated black cherry notes already present on the nose.
67% Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
