Chateau Duhart Milon Pauillac 2010
Strong dark cassis aromas, this wine is full of firmness and masculinity. A wine which focuses on power rather than grace and will require a few years bottle age before it reaches its peak.
As part of the Lafite Family Estates, demand for these wines has grown in recent years as investment has improved the quality of subsequent vintages. This is classic firm slightly austere and full bodied Pauillac. ‘It would have been nonsense not to acquire such a great neighbouring vineyard.’ Baron Eric de Rothschild
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.
