2010 Château Clerc Milon, Cru Classé Pauillac

The wine is a blend this year of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Carmenère, a wider range than at many of its neighbours. At a tasting with its stablemates at Mouton though, the predominant first-impression is a very fine Cabernet character on the nose - austere and clean, with a slight antiseptic quality. A cool mouthfeel leads on to fine tannins and very noticeable, but balanced acidity. This isn't a wine which gives up its charms easily but certainly possesses the tools to develop into something very fine.
