A year that will be remembered for its contrasting climatic conditions, 2018 is in line with the most successful vintages of Chateau Clerc-Milon, a Grand Cru Classe of Pauillac, located on the left bank of Bordeaux.
Despite an unfavourable start to the year, the beautifully hot and dry summer made it possible to harvest under exceptionally peaceful conditions. The harvest began on September 17 with Merlot and ended with the Petit Verdot and Carmenere on October 10th. The fruit was harvested in superb health and achieved exceptional richness in sugars and a nice tannic structure.
Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (27%), Cabernet Franc (9%), Petit Verdot (3%) and Carmenere (1%), the Chateau Clerc-Milon 2018 unveils a beautiful colour in the glass, along with purple reflections. The aromatic bouquet is quite expressive, opening with fresh aromas of small fruits, mingling with floral fragrances and delicious touches of violet. Spice and licorice notes come next, followed by refreshing hints of mint. On the palate, this wine offers a dense and opulent texture and a silky tannic structure. Full of freshness, it continues to develop peppery and menthol notes, along with flavours of bitter chocolate. The finish continues with remarkable harmony. A superb vintage from Château Clerc-Milon.
Dense and rich, with a high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon, this is another great vintage from the estate. Its black fruits ooze concentration alongside firm tannins that promise potential for long ageing. The aftertaste has opulent black currant richness.
