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

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.
