Tasting Notes

WS93

Very ripe and intense, delivering a leather and jam undertone and aromas of raisiny grape. Full-bodied, with soft and round tannins that have a cashmere texture. Flavors are of dried fruits, but also forest floor, leaves and autumnal things in general. A little meaty, but sweet fruit comes through.

WA90

The 1989 Clerc-Milon is a wonderfully hedonistic wine. It is deep ruby, with an intense, roasted, smoky bouquet of plums and currants. This full-bodied wine is packed with fruit, is chewy and opulent as well as very soft and alcoholic. In spite of the precocious impression, the tannin levels are high, similar in fact to the 1986. For the first time in my experience, I actually prefer the Clerc-Milon to Mouton-Rothschild! A great value.

The Winery

Clerc Milon

In the 1855 Classification of Bordeaux, Clerc Milon was awarded the ranking of Fifth Growth. The wines consistently received recognition for their quality, terroir, as well as consistency and in 1970 Baron Philippe de Rothschild purchased the sixteen and a half hectres, which has now grown into 41 hectres within the north eastern region of Paulliac. Currently the vineyard has roughly half of the land planted for Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and two touches of Petit Verdot and Carmenere, paired with sandy gravel and clay limestone. The farming practices are environmentally friendly with limited pesticides, helping the grapes stay consistent and true with their vibrant, tannic flavors.
