Château Duhart Milon

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, .

4 /5

Duhart-Milon is one of the most striking châteaux in the Pauillac appellation. In 1855 the château was included in the famous classification of Médoc wines. The château is now part of the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) group. The history of Château Duhart Milon goes back to the early 18th century, when the owner of Château Lafite, Marquis Nicolas-Alexandre de Ségur, used the wines of Milon as his 'second wine'. Around 1840 the château, now called Duhart-Milon, already owned 40 hectares of the highest quality vineyard. After a difficult period in the middle of the last century, Duhart-Milon became the property of the Rothschild family. A new period of great flowering began.

Château Duhart Milon is located in the Pauillac appellation, on the west side of Château Lafite-Rothschild. The château currently has more than 70 hectares of vineyard. The soil is very typical of the region and contains a mixture of fine pebble, sand and lime. In combination with the mild climate, this is an ideal place for the cabernet sauvignon, which is the most important grape here. In addition, the château uses merlot and cabernet franc. The average age of the vines is more than 30 years.

The close cooperation with neighbor Château Lafite-Rothschild has led to an enormous quality boost. Typical characteristics are: low yields, manual harvest, classical vinification and a high sensitivity to the individual character of a wine year. This leads to very high-quality wines that reflect the special character of the Pauillac appellation: a combination of power, elegance and a unique ability to mature. The wine is aged in oak barrels from our own cooperage.

The vinification for this wine takes place by means of controlled fermentation in tanks before the maturation of barriques takes place. Depending on the wine year, this maturation takes 10 to 18 months.

The Duhart-Milion is a bland of the typical Pauillac composition of Cabernet Sauvignon (67%) and Merlot (33%) and is deep purple-red in color, changing to garnet to brown-red in color. It has a strong, variegated scent with notes of black cherry, blackberry and cedar and a beautiful woody touch. Full, firm attack, very cool texture and a complex fruity taste with earthy tones, playful tannins, freshness of the Cabernet and an impressive length. The wine is at its best when the Merlot has matured because then the wines get those merlot tannins, acids and vegetable tones that give it the extra complexity that this vintage gives. The 2016 has received no less than 93 Parker points and has a great drinking window (up to 2035+). The vineyard is adjacent to that of Château Lafite Rothschild (same owners) and Lafite's refined elegance is almost always present in Duhart-Milon, along with spicy wood, vanilla and tobacco tones and certainly in this 2016 vintage. The cellars are located at the Pauillac quay. Of the barrels used there, 33% to 40% are new.

Dark red tone and furthermore rather opaque. The aromas of coffee and toffee predominate.Quite sweet.
I took this Pauillac during a brunch.
It was given to us in a wine tasting stand of red.

4/5

This Château Duhart Milon was a very good pairing for the desserts. I gave it to my parents and we tried it together.
The Château Duhart Milon offers wonderful tinges. Aromas of red fruit jelly, with notes of green pepper. I noticed a smoky flavour.

I don't remember where I bought it, but I did a good choice.
A really tasteful wine of red ruby colour . Dominating scent of red currant. It was light.
