WS 91
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2009
Offers a gorgeous nose of crushed blueberry and cream with a hint of milk chocolate. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a pretty finish. Best after 2014. 15000 cases made. -JS

Supple solid and broad with a mouthfilling fleshiness leavened by good energy and vinosity. There's a medicinal reserve to the redcurrant and dark chocolate flavors. Finishes broad and long with substantial dusty tannins and very good length. A more muscular style than Armailhac also from the team at Mouton-Rothschild and in need of at least five years of cellaring. 90 points

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London.The 2006 Château Clerc-Milon has a very respectable bouquet: red fruit rather than black, laced with tobacco, woodland and dried herbs aromas, quite Saint Julien-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet, succulent opening: blackberry and raspberry fruit laced with salt and a dash of white pepper that leave the mouth tingling on the Merlot-driven finish. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

The aromas offer a nice complexity with cinnamon spicy red fruits hints of violet and lilac with a soft touch of vanilla and cedar. While soft and sweet up front the wine builds on the mid-palate and has great depth and structure. Darker fruits come in on the mid-palate leading to a spicy lingering finish of cassis and vanilla. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
