The Cabernet Franc was fantastic this year, so it was all used in the grand vin. The final blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Carménère. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Clerc Milon leaps from the glass with beautiful scents of chocolate-covered cherries, plum preserves and crushed blackcurrants with suggestions of lilacs, cardamom, underbrush and unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a firm frame of finely grained tannins and seamless freshness lifting the perfumed fruit to a nice long finish.

Tasting note


The 2016 Chateau Clerc-Milon, a distinguished wine from Pauillac, France, is a testament to the exceptional vintage it hails from. This wine exudes a deep, dark ruby-red hue, leading to a bouquet of delicate cherry and meaty aromas, underpinned by pure cassis fruit with a hint of leafiness. The palate is greeted with a fresh vibrancy, enhancing the clean blackcurrant flavors, while touches of graphite and cedar from careful oak maturation add complexity. The finish is a showcase of the wine's fine structure, well-integrated with the fruit, and enduring on the palate. With its dense and creamy mouthfeel, the wine offers a generous range of flavors, including blackberry, bilberry, and spicy oak, culminating in a long, rich finish with chocolate notes. Decanting for two hours is recommended to fully appreciate its depth, and it pairs beautifully with roast lamb or beef Wellington.
