Reviews for 2005 Clerc Milon Bordeaux Blend

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.

Fine and impressive even in this vintage, Clerc Milon’s 2005 has a dense purple color and a beautifully sweet, creamy blackcurrant nose of cedar wood and flowers. Spicy, earthy, rich, and medium to full-bodied, it will probably be at its best between 2020 and 2035. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Extremely floral nose over tobacco raspberry and cherry. Very full and round on the plate. Fine tannins that are well integrated. Ripe fruit up front with notes of chocolate and espresso. Delicious.
