2019 Château Clerc Milon, 5ème Grand Cru Classé Pauillac – En Primeur is now available.
Once part of the Lafite estate, Château Clerc Milon regained its previous glory under the ownership of the Rothschild family. The wines are known to be powerful yet elegant and are great examples of Pauillac.
The wine has the highest levels of Cabernet Sauvignon since the 1980s, and even on the nose you can feel its impact in terms of the depth of tight black fruit. Extremely good quality with fine tannins that build, build, build over the palate, and grip on, forcing you to slow down and pay attention. Beautiful spice with menthol, slate, pencil lead, blackberry and blackcurrant. An exciting wine with real energy and forward motion, helped to withstand the summer heat by its position by the river, and the fact that the average age of the vines at Clerc Milon is almost 50 years. 2% Petit Verdot completes the blend. Jean Emmanuel Danjoy’s last outing doing the full vintage. Drinking Window 2028 – 2044 – 95 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter Magazine, May 2020
