Confirming its place in the firmament of Pauillac greats, Clerc Milon’s 2010 has huge density, and is packed with dark tannins and blackberry flavor. It has a delicious freshness that cuts right through, lifting the concentration. With its tannins, this promises long-term aging.

Gorgeous currants and spices with licorice on the nose. Full body, with super integrated tannins and a long, long finish. The texture and beautiful fruit just wants you to drink this. Give it time but hard to wait. Try in... Gorgeous currants and spices with licorice on the nose. Full body, with super integrated tannins and a long, long finish. The texture and beautiful fruit just wants you to drink this. Give it time but hard to wait. Try in 2016.

One the finest Clerc Milons I have ever tasted, and showing better from bottle than from barrel, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and the rest a tiny bit of Carmenere and Petit Verdot... One the finest Clerc Milons I have ever tasted, and showing better from bottle than from barrel, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and the rest a tiny bit of Carmenere and Petit Verdot has a complex nose of cedar wood, red and black fruits, white chocolate and creme de cassis. A very powerful wine at 14.5% natural alcohol (quite high for a Medoc), this wine has impressive purity and texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, relatively sweet tannin, but an already endearing complexity, length and richness that are hard to ignore. This is a superb effort and one of the wines that is usually reasonably priced among the classified growths. - Robert Parker

Rock-solid, with layers of baker's chocolate and espresso lining the steeped plum and blackberry fruit flavors while intense charcoal fills in on the hefty finish. Backward now, but showing excellent intensity and dark fruit, with a tug of singed iron on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. – JM

Very dark crimson. Intense and luscious on the nose. Manages to be both round and inky! Great intensity and structure. Although some restraint too – it certainly isn't OTT. 18/20

Expressive, complex aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, cedar, lead pencil, tobacco and fresh herbs. Velvety and fine-grained in the mouth, with energetic dark fruit flavors accented by flowers, cedar and fresh herbs. Finishes with ripe tannins and excellent sneaky length. I like the impression of sheer size and fresh fruit.

Harvest began on Sep 28 and ended Oct 13. A very perfumed and floral nose is complemented by lead pencil black pepper and baking spice. On the palate which is fresh and elegant bright acidity and chalky tannins provide contrast to the red fruit and spice notes in the mouth. Tremendous depth here. 2010 is indeed a very successful vintage for Clerc Milon.

The dark purple 2010 Clerc Milon is a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon, 36% merlot, 11% cabernet franc and the balance of petit verdot and carmenere. Aged in 50% new oak, this vintage offers an array of red and black fruit mixed with licorice, grilled meats and turned earth. Medium plus bodied on the palate with very robust tannins. Notes of blackberry compote, cassis and anise come in on the finish. This youthful wine requires at least another 5-8 years in bottle and should be enjoyed the following two decades.
