Region : Bordeaux (France), France (France)
Bottle Per Case : 6 x 750 ml
Food Pairing : Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables
"A blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot, it displays an inky/blue/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, forest floor, licorice, lead pencil, cedar and subtle barrique smells. Viscous and full-bodied, it is the most concentrated and broadest example of this cuvee I have tasted in over three decades. It will be ready to drink in 5-7 years and should last for three decades or more. Consumers looking to maximize value should be checking out Duhart Milon, as this may be the single smartest purchase in this great and historic vintage!"

The history of Château Duhart Milon dates back to the early 18th century, when Pauillac was covered with vines, under the direction of the Seigneurie de Lafite. The classification of 1855 recognizes the quality of the soil of Duhart-Milon by positioning it as the only 4th Grand Cru Classé of the commune of Pauillac.
In 1937, the variation of successive legacies led to its sale to five owners. Over the next 25 years, the vineyard significantly declined. The quality of the wines dropped until the Rothschild family bought the property in 1962. By that time, the estate had only 17 hectares of vines. Between 1973 and 2001, it was increased to 71 hectares.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, the maturity of the plantations and the renovation of the cellars have brought the last touches to the considerable qualitative effort that has been made during 40 years to give Château Duhart-Milon its rank of 4th growth.
The terroir of Château Duhart-Milon are divided between 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot. The average age of the vineyard is 30 years old. Many works are engaged in the vineyard: drainage works, uprooting and replanting, purchase of plots. New cellars and vats are also installed in Pauillac. Each parcel is isolated during the vinification to appreciate its quality to enter the great wine at the end of fermentations. The wine is aged 14 months in barrels of which 50% is new.
It's important to remember that taste is subjective, and personal preferences play a significant role.
