2016 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.
Hot crushed stones and dark berries jump out of the glass. Full body, very dense fruit and powerful tannins, yet it remains agile and bright with beauty and energy. So muscular and toned. Truly outstanding Clerc for the future. Unwavering nature to this. Try after 2024.
