Château Clerc Milon |Caroline Artaud
Included in the famous 1855 classification, Château Clerc Milon has 41 hectares of vines overlooking the Gironde Estuary in the commune of Pauillac. This estate’s wine is characterised by its rare, historical grape variety, Carmenère. A superb terroir both in terms of soil and sun exposure, it is adjacent to the first great growths of Bordeaux.
Baron Philippe de Rothschild (1902-1988) acquired Château Clerc Milon in 1970. Thanks to the dynamism of his daughter, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (1933- 2014) and a devoted team, Château Clerc Milon is gaining in quality year after year. The various changes have borne fruit, and Clerc Milon has now become one of the finest wines in the Médoc.
In 2015, the Château started producing a second wine known as Pastourelle de Clerc Milon.
Today, Philippe Sereys de Rothschild, Camille Sereys de Rothschild and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild maintain the legacy and expertise of their mother, Baronne Philippine.
