Wine Advocate 94 points - A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Carmenere and 11% Cabernet Franc, the 2010 Clerc Milon is completely different to the 2009 - brilliant delineation and focus to the point that puts all other vintages in the shade. The palate is beautifully defined and extremely pure with blackcurrant, crushed stone and wondrous minerality. There is a lovely crescendo in the mouth but unlike the 2009 it shows a modicum of restraint. This shimmering beauty should reward a decade in the cellar, although the precision is such that you could drink it now. Drink 2016-2030+ Tasted April 2013.
"One the finest Clerc Milons I have ever tasted, and showing better from bottle than from barrel, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and the rest a tiny bit of Carmenere and Petit Verdot has a complex nose of cedar wood, red and black fruits, white chocolate and creme de cassis. A very powerful wine at 14.5% natural alcohol (quite high for a Medoc), this wine has impressive purity and texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, relatively sweet tannin, but an already endearing complexity, length and richness that are hard to ignore. This is a superb effort and one of the wines that is usually reasonably priced among the classified growths." - Parker; "Rock-solid, with layers of baker's chocolate and espresso lining the steeped plum and blackberry fruit flavors while intense charcoal fills in on the hefty finish. Backward now, but showing excellent intensity and dark fruit, with a tug of singed iron on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2030." - Wine Spectator
