Château Duhart Milon Pauillac Ex-Negociant 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A wine with an intense sous bois, fresh tobacco and dried flower character on the nose and palate. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and an attractive finish. It's structured yet polished with a beauty and stature....93" JamesSuckling.com 02/13 "Tasted at Chateau Lafite-Rothschild. There is clearly a tangible difference in quality judging by the aromatics between the Moulin de Duhart and the Grand Vin. Here, there is superb intensity with blackberry, bilberry, hints of vanilla and graphite. The palate is very well balanced and perhaps more approachable than vintages of Duhart would have been in the past (perhaps due to the 27% Merlot content). The acidity is taut and the finish has a pastille-like purity. Excellent...94" NM The Wine Journal 2/13 "This plump red offers black tea, warm ganache, fig and black currant confiture notes backed by a smoky finish, with pillowy but lengthy tannins. Acidity then rushes in at the very end, adding more length. An impressive step up for this wine…92-95." WS 4/11 "...beautiful notes of creme de cassis, licorice, tobacco leaf and forest floor. Bigger and more muscular than most previous vintages, this full-bodied Pauillac possesses stunning density as well as intensity...94-96" WA 5/11

Dense purple, with classic notes of cedar and lead pencil shavings as well as gobs of back currants and licorice, the wine has a full-bodied mouthfeel with fabulous precision and density. It also possesses a long, silky finish with moderately high tannins, but they are ripe and well-integrated. The wood is clearly pushed to the background in this dense, full-bodied Pauillac, which should drink beautifully for 30+ years.

73% cabernet sauvignon 27% merlot. The merlot harvest began in September and ended October 4th while cabernet was harvested October 1 through 12th. A bit muted on the nose but dark chocolate coffee and spicy black pepper prevail with some swirling. On the palate flavors of red raspberry and mocha are balanced by a chalky minerality and zippy acidity. Less lushness here than Carruades but more precision. This wine already tastes great but will continue to improve over the next 12-15 years. John Sweeney.

A wine with an intense sous bois fresh tobacco and dried flower character on the nose and palate. Full body with ultra-fine tannins and an attractive finish. It s structured yet polished with a beauty and stature. Try in 2015. James Suckling.

Juicy black currant fruit mingles with bright acidity and dark-chocolate tannins. This often overlooked château, with the same production team as Lafite-Rothschild, has an intense and concentrated 2010, balanced superbly between firmness and fruitiness.

73% Cabernet Sauvignon 27% Merlot. Extremely deep crimson. Sweet pruney start - looks much more intense than Carruades presumably because of all the Cabernet. Very introvert; not much nose. Juicy fresh and liquorice - lots of energy. Lots of freshness. Dry finish. Very subtle but with extremely marked tannins. Just a little rugged. But the fruit is wonderfully concentrated. 17+ out of 20 Jancis Robinson.

Well-polished with sleek edges to the fleshy plum cassis and blackberry fruit while the finish is embedded with black licorice and violet notes. Approachable now but the stuffing is there to cellar this for a bit. Drink now through 2025. -JM Wine Spectator.
