The Clerc Milon 2010 is dark red with a violet tint. Black fruit and wild berry aromas mingle subtly with notes of liquorice and spice (black pepper) on the highly complex nose. This Pauillac's attack, forthright and full-bodied, rounds out on succulent fresh fruit flavours. The wine's velvet texture gives harmony to its tannic structure, ensuring balance and great refinement.The long and warm-hearted finish lingers on acidulated, intensely fresh flavours.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
One the finest Clerc Milons I have ever tasted, and showing better from bottle than from barrel, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and the rest a tiny bit of Carmenere and Petit Verdot has a complex nose of cedar wood, red and black fruits, white chocolate and creme de cassis. A very powerful wine at 14.5% natural alcohol (quite high for a Medoc), this wine has impressive purity and texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, relatively sweet tannin, but an already endearing complexity, length and richness that are hard to ignore. This is a superb effort and one of the wines that is usually reasonably priced among the classified growths.
