This superb 5th Growth Pauillac is owned by the Rothschild family, now for the third generation. With vineyards perfectly positioned next to First Growths Lafite and Mouton, the only surprise is its classification isn't higher. A 95-96pt masterpiece.

Château Clerc Milon is a worthy member of the Rothschild portfolio. It was founded in 18th century, taking its present name from its owner at the time of the 1855 classification Jean-Baptiste Clerc and the village of Milon in which it sits. In 1970, with only half of its original vineyards and in a severely dilapidated state, it was acquired by Baron Philippe de Rothschild. Over the years, the family and team at Mouton have worked hard to restore it to its glory days and its wines today far exceeds it 1855 fifth-growth classification. Indeed, it's one of the most highly regarded of the classed growths, with new facilities in 2007 and 2011. The 2022 is a superb wine thanks to great vintage conditions. “Beautiful” (WA). Ideally cellar.

"Bold and characterful from the first sip. Juicy and fun, lively, expressive, well worked and so easy" Georgina Hindle
