2015 was a hot and dry year, conducive to a great vintage. The flowering took place in beautiful conditions in May, followed by a sunny and dry summer. In August and September there was some rain which was beneficial to the vines, giving them a boost and allowing the ripening process to start again. Each parcel was harvested at its optimum maturity

Blend of the 2015 vintage: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot, 1% Carmenère

The robe is a very dark red color, with brilliant slightly tiled reflections.

The nose is intense and releases very expressive aromas of wild berries, blackberry, blackcurrant buds, followed by toasted wood and light tobacco.

The attack is frank, and it follows a lot of fullness and intensity thanks to chiseled tannins. The wine is very tasty, with notes of exotic spices, blackcurrant and dark chocolate. The finish is long, tangy and very persistent.

Food and wine pairing:

Château Clerc Milon 2015 will ideally accompany all types of game: a roasted wild boar leg with grand veneur sauce, a wild rabbit with mushrooms or a pheasant hunter. It can also be enjoyed with a saddle of lamb with herbs or a rib of beef cooked on vine shoots.

As cheeses, it will be appreciated on Edam, Gouda, steamed mimolette and Saint-Nectaire.

Cellaring potential and tasting:

Château Clerc Milon 2015 in magnum can wait at least 15 years in the cellar, and will reach its peak between 2035 and 2045, due to the large capacity of the bottle which allows the wine to gain in aging potential.

It can however be tasted soon, if you open the bottle the day before at room temperature. Otherwise, open the bottle 6 to 7 hours before tasting, decanting if possible.

To follow its evolution over time, do not hesitate to proceed to successive tastings to measure the evolution of the wine and its qualitative peak.

The bottles will be kept in the cellar protected from light, lying down, at an optimal hygrometric degree of 70 %.
