Chateau Duhart Milon 2011
The weather conditions were somewhat unusual this year and required all of our technical teams’ vigilance and expertise. Spring and summer changed places: spring was exceptionally hot and dry, resulting in an acceleration of the growth cycle, and then the summer saw less sunshine than usual in July, and a wetter than average August. Finally, just as we were getting ready to harvest, a huge hail storm in the north of Pauillac and Saint Estèphe on 1 September and obliged us to reorganize the schedules. The plots that had been affected had to be picked first; fortunately, as a result of the conditions, the grapes had ripened early, and quality was not compromised.

External Reviews for Chateau Duhart Milon
Shows high-toned cherry, tobacco leaf, grilled herb and lightly mulled spice notes. Very formed already, with a lingering dusty finish as the herb note peeks out more and more with air. Tasted non-blind.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild 3000ml
Rich, spicy and dense, this wine shows a serious side. It has power and concentration, and the wood offers dryness as well as spice. Its fruit seems to be a separate layer at this stage. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild 1500ml
This shows lots of sweet tobacco and blueberry character. Full and silky with fine tannins. Keeps fresh. Long. Well done. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild 1500ml
Consumers should take note as this estate is clearly benefiting from increased attention from the Rothschilds. The 2003 may be the finest Duhart-Milon made ... ever! A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon
The savory tobacco and cassis notes race along with a charcoal frame. A backdrop of kirsch fill this out displaying a peppery hint on the lightly dusty finish. Tasted non-blind. J.M. Wine Spectator.
Lovely dark and intense red color. Fruity yet a bit discreet on the nose. Smooth and finely chubby on the palate the wine develops extremely fruity mellow and very tasty with a purity of fruit unknown hitherto. Mellow body. This is a very enjoyable wine with coated tannins and a normal length. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com
Food Pairings for Chateau Duhart Milon
Intense colour with hints of purple. Initially characterized by woodiness, the nose then presents a beautiful expression of red fruit, tobacco and spicy notes. Elegant and fresh on the palate. Fine structure, density and length with a complex fruity finish.
