Ch Clerc Milon 2022
5e Grand Cru Classé
Vinous – Neil Martin – 91-93/100
The 2022 Clerc Milon, matured in 55% new oak with 14.6% alcohol, has a
very tightly-wound nose at the moment. There’s good fruit concentration,
but it is missing a bit of personality, unlike its stablemate d’Armailhac. The
palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins and good grip. It’s pretty dense
and grainy in texture. With graphite on the aftertaste, this Pauillac conveys
fine tension but will require several years of aging in bottle. I feel this is
hiding its virtues at the moment.
Robert Parker The Wine Advocate – 93-95/100
The 2022 Clerc Milon is beautiful, offering up aromas of cherries, raspberries and plums mingled with hints of pencil shavings and rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it’s taut and lively, with a vibrant core of fruit framed by fine, chalky tannins. Its clay-limestone terroir lends it a distinctive signature that sets it apart from the rest of the portfolio.
