Chateau Clerc-Milon

Pauillac, Bordeaux

French Wines

Chateau Clerc-Milon, Pauillac, Médoc, BordeauxChateau Clerc-Milon
The name originates from Jean-Baptiste Clerc who owned land close to the river, whilst Milon refers to the lieu-dit and nearby village. It was classified a Fifth Growth in 1855 but Clerc died in 1863, precipitating legal proceedings between his inheritors and Monsieur Jacques Mondon over the rights to use the name: "Clerc-Milon". Château Clerc Milon, whose upkeep and management left much to be desired, was acquired by Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1970. Vines were replanted by staff from Château Mouton Rothschild, parcels were consolidated and many technical improvements were made, including the building of a new vat-house. These efforts are now bearing fruit and Château Clerc Milon has become one of the most sought-after Médoc wines, displaying a richness and depth comparable with the very best. The Château Clerc Milon label is illustrated with a pair of dancing clowns made of precious stones (the work of a 16th century German goldsmith) from the Museum of Wine in Art at Château Mouton Rothschild. The château, which in reality is no more than a small, rather plain-looking house, is located in the small hamlet of Mousset, in the north of Pauillac.

Chateau Clerc Milon, Pauillac, Médoc, BordeauxChateau Clerc-Milon
Château Clerc Milon has 30 hectares of vines on the commune of Pauillac, planted with the typical varieties of the region: Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Cabernet Franc (10%), Merlot (20%). The wine is fermented for a relatively long 22 to 28 days in stainless-steel vats, after which it is matured in oak barrels, 30% new and the remaining one year old and after 16 to 18 months the wine is fined and bottled. The vineyard, spread across the lovely crests of Milon and Mousset, adjoins two of the greatest growths in the Médoc, Lafite and Mouton. Château Clerc Milon, whose upkeed and management left much to be desired, was acquired by Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1970. Vines were replanted by staff from Château Mouton Rothschild, parcels were consolidated and many technical improvements were made, including the building of a new vat house. These efforts are now bearing fruit and Château Clerc Milon has become one of the most sought-after Médoc wines, displaying a richness and depth comparable with the very best.

Chateau Clerc-Milon 2000 Pauillac -  Bordeaux France Chateau Clerc-Milon 2000 - Bordeaux FranceRed Wine
This flamboyant, dense, opaque purple-colored wine, made from a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot, is muscular, with an unctuous texture and high levels of tannin as well as extract. Compared to its other sibling in the Mouton-Rothschild stable, d'Armailhac, it is far more closed and tannic but still somewhat ostentatious, with smoky, leathery notes intermixed with oodles of black fruits and spice box. Robert Parker Rating - 92/100

Birthday Wines, vintagesBaroness Philippine de Rothschild
Milon is a small village near Chateau Lafite, but Chateau Clerc-Milon itself is situated in the northernmost part of the Pauillac appellation near Mousset. Here Baroness Philippine de Rothschild – Baron Philippe’s daughter - can oversee activity at Clerc-Milon, Mouton-Rothschild and d’Armailhac, whilst keeping up to date with progress at her other interests in Chile (Almaviva) and California (Opus One), as well as the branded side of the business – such as the infamous Mouton Cadet. The vines at Clerc-Milon average over 50 years of age and are planted at a density of over 8000 plants per hectare. The end result, after fermentation, is the grand vin Chateau Clerc-Milon. There is no second wine. Birthday Gifts
