Chateau Clerc Milon Pauillac 2005


SKU MT167605


Intensely coloured, the intense and open nose displays ripe fruit, liquorice, spice and roasted coffee aromas. The structure, well-contained, round and powerful, builds gradually from a clean attack. The tannins, though young, are already well-integated and very stylish. The vinous and full-flavoured palate is sustained by super-ripe fruit and a touch of pepper, leading into a long and well-structured finish on notes of bitter chocolate.

Wine SpectatorOffers fabulous aromas of currant, tar, lead pencil and mineral. Full-bodied, with supersoft tannins that caress the palate. Beautiful and impressive. A fabulous wine. The best Clerc in a very long time. Best after 2014. 10,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateFine and impressive even in this vintage, Clerc Milon's 2005 has a dense purple color and a beautifully sweet, creamy blackcurrant nose of cedar wood and flowers. Spicy, earthy, rich, and medium to full-bodied, it will probably be at its best between 2020 and 2035.

Wine EnthusiastClerc-Milon continues on its rising path of quality with this rich and rounded magnificent 2005. Driven by rich, red jam fruits, and dominated by the dense, solid tannins, this wine is already approachable, but will develop over 8-12 years.
