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 :
The 2010 Clerc Milon has long been a favorite wine of mine. It has a gorgeous bouquet, with black cherries, raspberry preserve and a touch of Italian cured meatùall beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied, with supple tannin, very good weight and grip and a keen line of acidity. It is still very backward, with hints of black truffle in a very persistent aftertaste. This is simply one of the finest wines from Clerc Milon in recent years. Tasted April 2017.
