Château Duhart-Milon is part of the Lafite Rothschild stable and is certainly a wine that you should consider in your investment portfolio. Chateau Duhart Milon is based in Pauillac, on the Left Bank in Bordeaux – and the prices are almost always half the price of the second wine – Carruades de Lafite. Chateau Duhart Milon has been on top form for a while now – and receives decent critic scores year in year out.
This is classical in style with lead pencil and sweet tobacco to the currant and plum undertones. Warm and cool at the same time. Full-bodied, tight and reserved with very polished, creamy tannins. It goes on and on. Compact, creamy texture. Try after 2023. 95 points – James Suckling.
Blended of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot, the 2017 Duhart-Milon is deep garnet-purple colored and comes tumbling freely out of the glass with open, expressive black plums, Black Forest cake and blueberry compote notes plus savory wafts of woodsmoke, beef drippings, black olives and cumin seed with an emerging touch of cassis. Medium-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with juicy black plum flavors and a plush texture, lifted by seamless freshness, finishing spicy. Nicely done. 2020-2034. 91 points – Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate
