Château Clerc Milon, a 5th Growth Pauillac estate, remained in obscurity until its acquisition by Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1970. The château, which is actually a small, non-descript house, is located in the small hamlet of Mousset, in northern Pauillac. Clerc Milon's 32 hectares of vineyards are located on a gravel ridge between the vineyards of Mouton-Rothschild and Lafite-Rothschild. Clerc Milon is now owned by Baronne Philipine de Rothschild, with Patrick Léon as managing and technical director. 

Clerc Milon's wine is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It is matured in oak casks (30% new) for 18 months. The wine is lighter in style and more forward than Mouton - it does not require the extended cellaring that is mandatory for Mouton and can be approached 5-7 years after the vintage. A notable bargain amongst Pauillac classed growths.
