The 2006 Chateau Duhart-Milon displayed a comparatively muted nose that does not really escape from the glass, despite encouragement (somewhat typical of Duhart in its first ten years). The palate is gritty and hard with plenty of graphite infusing the broody black fruit at the moment, though the finish feels rather pinched. Give this another 2-3 years and plenty of decanting. Tasted April 2016.
Drink Date: 2019 - 2035

Chateau Duhart-Milon’s grand vin is often described as a model of the Pauillac appellation. The broker Guillaume Lawton noted as early as 1815 that “it is very robust, with a fine colour, and quite pronounced sappiness” (he describes the “sappiness” of the Medoc’s premiers crus as “something like the odour given off by finest sealing wax when it is burned”).

70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot
The climate was full of contrasts with a cold wet winter, a fine spring and a summer with alternating hot and cool periods. Mid-September brought a stormy spell. Meticulous attention was needed to obtain healthy, ripe grapes.

TASTING NOTES (AT BOTTLING)
Beautiful dark garnet-red colour. Discreet camphor notes on the nose, toasted aromas with a nice structure. Plenty of potential for this wine.
