  • What the experts say...

    (...) Généreusement boisé, avec un fruité riche et abondant aux notes de pain grillé, ce Clerc Milon se révèle plus massif et plus concentré que les millésimes précédents. D'un rubis-poupre dense, il exhale un bouquet de café torréfié, de tabac et de cassis confituré. L'attaque est étonnamment douce et opulente ; le milieu de bouche et la finale attestent parfaitement le caractère très corsé, richement extrait et modérément tannique de l'ensemble. (...)

    Its rich, distinguished character, comparable to many of the Médoc's finest wines, has resulted in its becoming extremely popular. The wines currently being produced are very structured, with intense aromas of red fruit.

    Information about domain Château Clerc Milon

    Baron Philippe de Rothschild acquired Château Clerc Milon in 1970, which had fallen into a state of neglect. The renovation of the vineyard by the teams from Château Mouton Rothschild, with a consolidation of the plots and various technical improvements, including the construction of a new vat room, are now bearing fruit. The property was enlarged in 2004 with the acquisition and gradual integration of La Fleur Milon's vineyard.
