Chateau Clerc Milon 2010 is very deep red with a violet tint. Super-ripe black fruit, spice, dark chocolate and orange blossom aromas mingle harmoniously on the very powerful and complex nose. From a forthright and full-bodied onset, the palate rounds out sweetly on succulent fresh fruit and liquorice flavours. The wine’s velvet texture enfolds its tannic structure, ensuring balance and great refinement. The long and warm-hearted finish is lifted by intensely fresh acidity and mineral flavours.

2010 was a dry but relatively cool year, with no summer heatwave. These factors – dry conditions without drought, an exceptional amount of sunshine, cool nights and rainfall that arrived at just the right time – give the 2010 vintage a remarkable identity. A splendid sequel to 2009, it is sure to become an outstanding year in the long history of fine Bordeaux wine.

From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
One the finest Clerc Milons I have ever tasted, and showing better from bottle than from barrel, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and the rest a tiny bit of Carmenère (1%) and Petit Verdot (2%) has a complex nose of cedar wood, red and black fruits, white chocolate and crème de cassis. A very powerful wine at 14.5% natural alcohol (quite high for a Médoc), this wine has impressive purity and texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, relatively sweet tannin, but an already endearing complexity, length and richness that are hard to ignore. This is a superb effort and one of the wines that is usually reasonably priced among the classified growths. 02/13. 94 Points
