The 2014 Clerc Milon is more backward on the nose compared to the d’Armailhac: quite sumptuous in style with black fruit, dark plum, vanilla and a pungent violet scent. The palate is wonderful: a fabulous line of acidity, tensile and focused, mineral and intense with blackberry, citrus fruit, bilberry and cedar towards the elegant, yet intense finish. There is something almost Lafite-like about this Clerc-Milon and in my book, there is nothing wrong with that.

More briary, robust and structured than its stable mate d’Armailhac. Impressive vineyard depth – a serious Pauillac on top form.
