Reviews for 2011 Clerc Milon Bordeaux Blend

WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Displays a strong tobacco leaf edge from the start along with smoke and singed balsam wood notes all weaving around a core of dark plum and black cherry fruit. A touch firm in the end right now but shows very good range.-J.M.

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2014
A chewy wine but the tannins are polished and pretty. Full body, intense fruit and tannins, and a persistent finish. Muscular but balanced. Try in 2018.

Administrator Philippe Dalhuin told me this property (100 acres) has 240 separate parcels which must make the strategy of harvesting a nightmare. Composed of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon 37% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc... Administrator Philippe Dalhuin told me this property (100 acres) has 240 separate parcels which must make the strategy of harvesting a nightmare. Composed of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon 37% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and a dollop of Petit Verdot the 2011 Clerc Milon is more tannic tightly knit and structured than its sister chateau d'Armailhac. With more acidity showing it performed as if it had just come off malolactic fermentation. Possessing a dense color along with copious notes of new saddle leather black currants mocha and wood spice it will require several years of bottle age and should keep well for 15+ years. 89-91+

54% cabernet sauvignon 37% merlot 7% cabernet franc 1% petit verdot and 1% carmenere. Part of the Rothschild stable located in the northernmost part of the Pauillac appellation. Vineyards are planted in a mixture of sand... 54% cabernet sauvignon 37% merlot 7% cabernet franc 1% petit verdot and 1% carmenere. Part of the Rothschild stable located in the northernmost part of the Pauillac appellation. Vineyards are planted in a mixture of sand and gravel with more clay towards the river. A toasty and high-toned nose of red and black fruits is complimented by graphite black pepper and baking spices. On the palate vibrant acidity and fairly aggressive tannins provide a contrast to the red fruit and spice notes. This will need time to mellow out but should prove quite age-worthy. Enjoy 2015-2025.

The 2011 Clerc Milon is a hit when it comes to easy drinking Bordeaux. This shows a deep garnet red at the core with slight fading at the rim. The nose is well developed and dominated at the moment by red fruit aromas, with a touch of menthol, spice and tobacco lurking underneath. The palate confirms the nose and is balanced with the addition of potpourri notes. Mouthwatering acidity and solid mid palate weight, this is a soft, charming and approachable Bordeaux to enjoy over the next decade.
