Château Clerc Milon

As a member of the Rothschild Stable, Château Clerc Milon really needs no introduction.  The Pauillac property sits directly opposite Château Lafite Rothschild, displaying the true potential and ability of this estate.

Average production of this wine (there is no second label to date) is only 13,000 cases per year, so it is worth getting your hands on – Especially as this very affordable Pauillac offering has been awarded scores which match up to, (and on occasion surpass) its better recognised First Growth cousin in some vintages…
