Wow! Normally $60+, today $49...free shipping on 3 or more...the second wine of Bordeaux favorite Clerc-Milon (owned by Mouton-Rothschild), direct from Bordeaux! Drinking perfect right now!
Our Bordeaux connection comes through again! We buy a LOT of parcels in Bordeaux, but this one was a surprise -- perfectly aged, pristine cases of Pastourelle de Clerc Milon quietly resting in the cellars until we scooped it up. ONLY 15 CASES!
Clerc-Milon, in the prestigious commune of Pauillac, was purchased by Philippe de Rothschild in 1970. It was then heavily upgraded, and now is at the top of its game. Directly across the highway from another Rothschild, Château Lafite, it has a prime location and happily runs about $600 less than Mouton and Lafite!
Refinement is everywhere in this wine - on the palate, it is lush and creamy as the attack expands over well-integrated tannins to mingle with generous and varied flavors reminiscent of morello cherry and almonds, black cherry, sweet tobacco leaf and violets. A bit of savory espresso/mocha kicks in on the finish, too.
VERY cool to see this wine -- it’s not often it even makes it to the U.S.! As noted, we have but a tiny amount...please get on the site with alacrity if you want some of this gem!
