2021 Château Clerc Milon, Cru Classé Pauillac

2021 Château Clerc Milon, Cru Classé Pauillac

Tasted April 2022. Rich, savoury and broad with inky dark fruits, juicy in style. There's fresh acidity and some hazlenut and gentle baking spice from the oak. The tannins are supple but fine and delineated, creating a mouth-coating, rich effect.

Tasting notes

The 2021 Clerc Milon was bottled in mid-June. As reported from barrel, there is a slightly savory note on the nose, hints of brown spices infusing nicely with the black fruit. There is a little more "airiness" compared directly with the d'Armailhac. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, a little fresher and more tensile that its aforementioned stablemate, with ample depth and a peppery finish. This has kicked on in barrel and has its nose out in front.

Neal Martin, vinous.com (February 2024)

The 2021 Clerc Milon has turned out very well indeed, offering up aromas of dark berries and minty cassis mingled with hints of violets and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and concentrated, it's impressively deep and layered, with an ample core of fruit, lively acids and sweet, chalky tannins.
