The wine is dark, an attractive garnet red with deeper shades of violet. Reflecting the high proportion of Merlot, Chateau Clerc Milon 2008 opens on intense, almost jammy red fruit mingled with delicate touches of roasted coffee. Round and perfectly structured on the palate, it reveals blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. The nicely forward tannic structure contributes to the overall balance of a wine whose long and flavorsome finish suggests considerable aging potential.
