WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2008
Offers fabulous aromas of currant tar lead pencil and mineral. Full-bodied with supersoft tannins that caress the palate. Beautiful and impressive. A fabulous wine. The best Clerc in a very long time. Best after 2014. -JS

The Château Clerc-Milon 2005 offers slightly more delineation on the nose compared to the d’Armailhac with ravishing blackberry, raspberry, soy and cedar scents vying for attention. The palate is underpinned by a fine lattice of tannin. This is reserved at the moment and dichotomous to the nose, it seems more linear in style, foursquare even with a tight-lipped finish that needs another 3 or 4 years to really open. But the focus and concentration is clearly present and correct and it should be a joy in the not too distant future.

I have noticed that both myself and Robert Parker have consistently given the 2005 Château Clerc-Milon a very respectable 93 points. At ten years of age (has time flow that quickly?), I find no reason to change my opinion of a truly great wine for the estate. The nose is straight-down-the-line classic Clerc-Milon with intense graphite and cigar box aromas infusing the black fruit that could only come from Pauillac. The palate is medium-bodied with powerful black and red fruit, hints of tobacco suffusing the multi-layered black fruit that gently grip the mouth. It has opened slightly since I last tasted this wine, though I would still afford it another 3 to 4 years in bottle. This is a great Clerc-Milon, probably the best ever made. Tasted August 2016. - Neal Martin

Soft entry on the palate with a round full body. Big ripe tannins with a long sweet fruit and toasted caramel finish.
