La Pastourelle de Clerc Milon 2010, A.C. Pauillac

£65.00

Château Clerc Milon, a Grand Cru estate in the heart of Pauillac, was acquired by Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1970. The estate has always had tremendous potential, but clearly stepped up a gear in the last decade. La Pastourelle de Clerc Milon, is essentially the 2nd wine of the property, and the first release was in 2009. La Pastourelle offers more accessibility in its youth compared to its counterpart. Although it does have the potential to cellar for 15 years from vintage.

Tasting notes

This is very in-keeping with the vintage stylistically, with dense black fruit and a structurally defined palate. Everything is a little muted until close to an hour in the decanter, then you can expect notes of mulberry, cassis, cinnamon, iron filings and toasted spice. There’s layers of ripe black fruit that have absorbed the oak nicely and the finish shows warm slate and cedary spice.
