Description :

This wine displays some of Lafite's classic notes of lead pencil shavings, cedar, and black currants along with more earthy, roasted herb, and spice box characteristics. Rich, full-bodied, dense, and already approachable, it should evolve easily for two decades. Good value

Château Duhart Milon

Château Duhart Milon Grand Cru Classé Pauillac  

Chateau Duhart-Milon is one of the few properties in the 1855 classification of Bordeaux to lack a true chateau; the wine is in fact finished in a large warehouse off a side street in Pauillac. This does not seem to have any detrimental effect on quality, however, which is currently high, the estate having been revitalised in recent decades following its acquisition, shortly before it perhaps disappeared altogether if its rapid rate of shrinkage was anything to judge by, by Domaines Rothschild.

The vineyards were completely cleared, drainage installed, and new vines planted in a similar proportion to that found at Lafite-Rothschild. The estate and vineyard expanded dramatically with the purchase of new plots and an active program of replanting, the vineyard reaching 42 hectares in 1973, and was up to 71 hectares by 2001, on an estate that now covers 152 hectares.  

Today the vines, which are harvested by hand, remain predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon (69%), with 28% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, on fairly typical soils of fine gravel, mixed with Aeolian sands, on a tertiary limestone bedrock.

After malolactic fermentation the wine goes into oak barrels (produced in the cooperage at Lafite), the length of time depending on the cuvée. The wine is racked every three months, and then fined using egg whites before bottling. The blend for Chateau Duhart-Milon the grand vin (typically 20000 cases per annum), is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, typically 80 to 85%, the balance Merlot.

There is a second wine, introduced in 1986, called Moulin de Duhart (typically 6000 cases per annum). This is a much more even blend, with typically 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, and it will spend up to ten months in two year old barrels before bottling.

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 92 points
"It is no longer an insider’s secret that the investments made by the Rothschild family (of Lafite) in Duhart Milon are paying big dividends. A shrewd Pauillac lover’s delight, it possesses exceptional quality, yet the price remains fair. This blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, only 50% made it into the final blend, displays some of Lafite’s classic notes of lead pencil shavings, cedar, and black currants along with more earthy, roasted herb, and spice box characteristics. Rich, full-bodied, dense, and already approachable, it should evolve easily for two decades. Good value." (Feb 2009)

Wine Spectator : 89 points
"Offers dried currant on the nose, with herbal undertones. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Best after 2013." (Mar 2009)

Stephen Tanzer : 89-91 points
"Deep, bright ruby-red. Ripe aromas of black cherry, cassis, violet and dark chocolate. Ripe, dense and silky-smooth, with a sweet chocolatey note in the mouth. Fleshier than the Carruades and riper on the back end, with the tannins more successfully buffered by fruit. Today I find this sample more refined than the 2005 version tasted a year ago." (Jun 2007)

Bettane et Desseauve : 16/20
