    The density of a velvety and concentrated Grand Cru Classe of Pauillac

    A year that will be remembered for its contrasting climatic conditions, 2018 is in line with the most successful vintages of Chateau Clerc-Milon, a Grand Cru Classe of Pauillac, located on the left bank of Bordeaux.

    Despite an unfavorable start to the year, the beautifully hot and dry summer made it possible to harvest under exceptionally peaceful conditions. The harvest began on September 17 with Merlot and ended with the Petit Verdot and Carmenere on October 10th. The fruit was harvested in superb health, and achieved exceptional richness in sugars and a nice tannic structure.

    Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (27%), Cabernet Franc (9%), Petit Verdot (3%) and Carmenere (1%), the Chateau Clerc-Milon 2018 unveils a beautiful color in the glass, along with purple reflections. The aromatic bouquet is quite expressive, opening with fresh aromas of small fruits, mingling with floral fragrances and delicious touches of violet. Spice and licorice notes come next, followed by refreshing hints of mint. On the palate, this wine offers a dense and opulent texture, and a silky tannic structure. Full of freshness, it continues to develop peppery and menthol notes, along with flavors of bitter chocolate. The finish continues with remarkable harmony. A superb vintage from Château Clerc-Milon.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2018 Clerc Milon is composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Carménère. Grapes were harvested a bit later here than at Mouton, from September 17 to October 10. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with bold scents of warm cassis, blackberry compote and dark chocolate with hints of Morello cherries, baking spices and dried roses plus a waft of underbrush. It has a wonderfully rich, confidently sensuous palate with plenty of spicy layers and a velvety texture, finishing long and perfumed. This should age incredibly.
