Wine Enthusiast, April 2011
The wine is dark deep rich and dense. It has just the right wood element black berry juice and a pure line of acidity. It is weighty for a 2008 while keeping the freshness. - R.V.

The Clerc-Milon 2008 has an earthy broody bouquet with dark plum blackberry and cedar aromas a saline note in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins fine delineation and good substance. It is a little oaky on the tobacco-tinged finish but there is enough fruit to back it up. Very fine. Tasted January 2012.

The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2008 Clerc Milon offers attractive aromas of toast black currants and forest floor.

The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2008 Clerc Milon offers attractive aromas of toast black currants and forest floor. Deep full-bodied rich elegant and moderately tannic this impressively endowed 2008 is an outstanding success from the Mouton Rothschild staff (who are responsible for making this wine). It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and should drink well for 15 years.

Wine Spectator, May 2011
This offers a solid structured core of red currant cherry skin and fig notes laced with savory herb violet and light-handed toast. There's nice cut on the iron-tinged finish with some depth in reserve for the cellar...

The vineyard consists of gravel over sandstone and clay with vines planted at a density of 8000 vines per hectare. A flowery nose offers back notes of cedar leather and mild tobacco. On the palate blackberry takes center stage framed by supple linear tannins and excellent fruit-to-acid balance. While maybe not the most broad-shouldered from the appellation it compensates with balance and integration. Age for a dozen or so years.
