This is a refined, St Julien like expression of Château Clerc Milon from Pauillac and the 2012 vintage. In all respects, this is classic left bank Bordeaux and an edge free experience. Every corner has been polished. It has textbook aromas of blackcurrant and cedar. The palate is medium bodied, has firm fine tannins and graceful length and balance. Approachable now, this wine will drink well over the next decade and beyond. Rating: Very Good (★★★★). Reviewed: April 2022.
