Pastourelle de Clerc Milon, Pauillac 2009, 750ml
The second label of Chateau Clerc Milon, which neighbors (and is now owned by) Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac. This bottling is generally governed by showcasing the softer plots in the estates 41 hectares planted to vine (half Cabernet, 36% Merlot, 11% Cab Franc, 2% Petit Verdot & 1% Carmenere - from the last 4 hectares left!) As a 2009 the wine has already turned the corner into mature flavors of terra cotta, baked red fruit and grilled meat, yet still with youthful tone and a plush mouthfeel. An outstanding value from a historic & classified house.
