The 2006 Clerc Milon presents with an intense purple color exhibiting fresh full aromas of black fruit notes which mingle with hints of almond paste, bark, vanilla and blackberry. On the palate, the wine is soft and velvety with mid palate freshness and harmonious balance. With age, the tannins will express themselves and in doing so will release a full, flavorful and succulent texture. Thr finish, is pleasanty long with ample fruit flavors which displays its youthful power.

"From the same stable as Mouton Rothschild and d’Armailhac, Clerc Milon, despite the relatively high percentage of Merlot (44%) combined with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Cabernet Franc, is dense, rich, tannic, and backward. Surprisingly muscular for this offering, which often exhibits a more precocious side, it offers up abundant amounts of creme brulee, chocolate, cedar, and black currants. This full-bodied Pauillac displays gorgeous purity and depth as well as moderately high tannins in the finish. Because of its freshness, structure, and density, it is reminiscent of a 1996 Medoc."

"Offers a gorgeous nose of crushed blueberry and cream, with a hint of milk chocolate. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a pretty finish."
