“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 andLafite, 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.
Château Clerc Milan 2013
An intense garnet red, the wine has a bright and glittering aspect. On the nose, Clerc Milon 2013 displays radiant aromas of slightly jammy raspberry fruit together with floral and mineral notes. Complex and engaging, these aromas are enhanced by elegant and finely toasted oak.
From the attack, the palate reveals the wine’s precise personality, with roundness and clear definition. The fruit on the nose accompanies an attractive depth of flavour which extends into a fresh finish underpinned by sappy tannins.
