Château Duhart Milon
Château Duhart-Milon, previously also Château Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, is a winery in the Pauillac appellation of the Bordeaux region of France. The wine produced here was classified as one of ten Quatrièmes Crus Classés (Fourth Growths)
Cabernet Sauvignon 67%, Merlot 33%
The soil is fine gravel mixed with aeolian sand on tertiary limestone subsoil
Each vintage is aged in oak barrels. The barrels are all made at the Domaine’s cooperage. The length of time the wine spends in barrels varies, depending on the vintage, between 10 to 18 months
73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot
The wine has a beautiful dark garnet color. The nose is deep, with good harmony between the young woodiness characteristic of our TDD barrels and the wine’s fresh fruit. Beautiful notes of liquorice. On the palate, it develops quickly and is immediately very present. Consistent and balanced, it continues with tremendous length. Pleasant finish with notes of cherries. Excellent potential to improve with age.
“Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot and aged for 14 months in barrels, 50% new, the 2015 Duhart-Milon has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and an open, expressive nose of warm red currants, black raspberries and spice cake with nuances of cedar chest, bay leaves and tobacco plus a waft of rose hips. Medium-bodied, vibrant and refreshing in the mouth, it has a good amount of chewy tannins and layers of lively red and black fruits, finishing on an earthy note.” – Wine Advocate
76 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 24 % Merlot
Deep, dense colour. Nose fairly closed but suggesting substantial hidden potential. Notes of liquorice and cherry stones. Good attack on the palate, full-bodied and supple, despite the wine still being in “shock” from the recent bottling. The palate offers the same aromatic notes as the nose, filled out with fresh red fruit. Superb, elegant length. This vintage’s classic character is already apparent, even though it is only just beginning to age in the bottle.
“A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot, the 2017 Duhart-Milon is beautifully scented of crushed red and black currants, black raspberries and spice cake with suggestions of lavender, cloves and rose hip tea. The palate is medium-bodied, very soft and elegant with seamless freshness and a lingering spiciness on the finish.” – Wine Advocate
