Duhart-Milon

Chateau Duhart-Milon was bought by the Rothschilds in 1962, owners of the neighbouring Lafite. They replanted the vines in the 1980s and built a new cellar in 2003. Once the vines were no longer young, real quality emerged. The wine has great structure and is slightly richer than the second wine of Lafite, Carruades de Lafite.

Duhart-Milon 2002 (7x75cl)

Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (90)

(75% cabernet sauvignon, 22% merlot and 3% cab franc) Full ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of cassis, licorice, bitter chocolate and mint, with a high-toned note of camphor. Medicinal black cherry flavors show a restrained sweetness. This came across as distinctly suppler and sweeter than the Carruades de Lafite, with more weight and breadth. Slightly herbal but not vegetal. Brisk acids give this a slightly hard edge on the finish, but there are also lingering berry and mint flavors. Duhart reportedly harvested on the late side in 2002.
