Pastourelle de Clerc Milon 2014

Chateau Clerc Milon is a wine estate in the Pauillac district of the Medoc, rated as a fifth growth in the Bordeaux Classification of 1855. The Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant wine is known for its supple texture and is regarded as something of a bargain for the appellation. The vineyard is in the northeast of Pauillac, between the Mouton Rothschild and Lafite Rothschild properties. The history of the estate began with the disposal of the larger Lafite estates during the French Revolution, with the Clerc family buying a portion near the hamlet of Milon. In 1970, Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Mouton Rothschild bought the property which has been extended and continuously improved over succeeding decades. The label's two dancers represent a 17th Century work in gold and precious stones displayed at the Museum of Wine in Art at Chateau Mouton Rothschild.
