2008 chateau clerc milon 5eme cru classe, pauillac
Why We're Buying
Not all fifth-growth Bordeaux are created equal. Château Cerlic-Milon stands out as a high watermark for the cru classé, with its cabernet sauvignon-dominant blend. The brainchild of Baron Philippe de Rothschild, the red wine appreciated 35.8% from 2017 to 2021.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2008 Clerc Milon offers attractive aromas of toast, black currants and forest floor. Deep, full-bodied, rich, elegant and moderately tannic, this impressively endowed 2008 is an outstanding success from the Mouton Rothschild staff (who are responsible for making this wine). It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and should drink well for 15 years.
