The 2015 Clerc Milon is plush, round and inviting, with a gorgeous center of fruit, striking aromatics and balance. The tannins are especially silky, which gives the 2015 much of its succulence and inviting personality. Hints of mocha, dark spices and violets add further shades of nuance and gravitas in a Clerc Milon endowed with real depth, density and gravitas. Patience will be key, as the 2015 is likely to require at least a few years to fully come together. This is a very pretty, rewarding Clerc Milon. Tasted three times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Clerc Milon is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, and 1% each of Petit Verdot and Carmenère, raised in 55% new oak. It has a highly perfumed bouquet with scents of small black cherries, graphite, touches of incense and wilted violets. This is a very extravagant bouquet for Clerc-Milon that wants to make an early impression. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, more expressive and delineated than the 2015 d'Armailhac, the finish beautifully focused with that graphite seam coming through on the sustained finish. This is potentially an outstanding Clerc-Milon, though it will need a decade in bottle to show its true potential. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2023-2045

This is super fine textured with ultra-polished tannins. Full body, blackberry, blueberry and dark chocolate. Long and refined. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Offers a rounded, juicy feel, with cherry and black currant fruit moving along, backed by sweet tobacco notes and a flicker of anise. Pure and fresh. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot, 1% Carmenère. Picked 17 Sep - 6 Oct. Rather broader and riper than Armailhac, presumably thanks to the lower Cabernet quotient. But still very fresh, almost inky. Dry finish. 'New fashioned.' Super-appetising. Very long.

Fuller than its stablemate d'Armailhac, showing more black fruits and a broader palate, but the same silky richness is there – a hallmark of big brother Mouton. Has great depth for the future. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2021-2040

Smooth, rich and well upholstered, this is typical of the wines from the Mouton stable, especially now that the new cellar is in action. It’s a ripe, textured, sweetly oaked style that nods towards the New World as much as the Gironde, and is skilfully done. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2028
