Description

95    Jane Anson for Decanter
“Clerc is outperforming in texture, depth, fruit character and overall complexity compared to Armailhac, even though at this point in its history the investments and improvements that this property had seen were just at the beginning, and Jean Emmanuel Donjoy had joined just a year before as technical director from Opus One in Napa. This is a near perfect Pauillac to be drinking now, and I would skip right to it in the Mouton stable while you wait for its First Growth sibling to come around – or simply stay right here, because you are not going to be sorry. The juicy character continues right through the palate, and there are layers of liquorice, black cherry, damson and bilberries, all delivered in a silky texture that is ripped with tannins cradling the fruit in just the way you want them to. I love it.” (1/2020)

94    James Suckling
“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.” (2/2013)

94    Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Clerc Milon rolls effortlessly out of the glass with open-knit scents of baked black cherries, blackberry preserves and crème de cassis with hints of leather, unsmoked cigars and dried sage with a waft of pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with concentrated black fruits and framed by firm, grainy tannins and tons of freshness, finishing long with great purity.” (3/2020)

94    Roger Voss for Wine Enthusiast
“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.”(2/2013)

94    James Molesworth for Wine Spectator
“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.” (3/2013)
