Chateau Clerc-Milon

Purchased in the early 1970s by Baron Philippe, this was the third (and last) classified property to be purchased by the Rothschild faimly.  Today, this fifth-growth draws from 32 hectares of vines - a fragmented 100 or so plots, mostly located on the northern plateau of Pauillac.

All viticulture and winemaking is undertaken by the one team that manages Chateaux Mouton Rothschild and d'Armailhac, so quality is very high.  Certainly over the past decade or so quality has noticeably risen, and the style of the wine has become more apparent, being more powerful and structured than d'Armailhac.  Winemaking is traditional, with the wine aged for around 16 months in one-third new oak each year.

One noteworthy point - Clerc-Milon is one of only two properties in Bordeaux that include the grape variety Carmenere in their wine each year (the other being St.-Emilion's de Fonbel).
