Château Clerc Milon
Includedin the famous 1855 classification, Château Clerc Milon covers 40 hectares of vines overlooking the Gironde estuary in the commune of Pauillac.
The vineyard is neighbouring two of the greatest Châteaux in the Médoc, Mouton and Lafite. It has a superb terroir both in terms of soil and sun exposure.
Baron Philippe de Rothschild purchased Château Clerc Milon in 1970 at a moment when important restorations were needed. Thanks to the dynamism of his daughter, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and a devoted winemaking team, Château Clerc Milon is gaining in quality year after year. The vineyard was entirely restructured and many technical improvements instituted. The construction of a new vat room in 2007 and introduction of innovative winemaking equipment rounded out an ambitious renovation programme. The various changes have come to their fruition and Clerc Milon has become one of the finest wines in the Médoc.
It is now one the most sought-after in its appellation and has acquired a nobility and richness comparable to the very best Grands Crus.
