Expert opinion :
Robert Parker89/100 (6-2004)
The Rothschilds are making enormous investments in this estate, so I’m expecting a breakthrough effort to emerge (maybe the 2003 qualifies). The deep ruby-colored 2001 exhibits a moderately intense, noble bouquet of graphite, plums, and currants. Elegant (much in the style of Lafite) with medium body, sweet tannin, and a lively finish,
Wine Spectator89/100 (3-2004)
Good core of fruit, with silky tannins and a medium to long finish of licorice, smoke and berry. Very good red.
Jancis Robinson17/20 (1-2008)
Dark red. Wild, diffuse aromas. Thick and chewy and sweet. Satisfying, lively mouthful but pretty evolved. Quite racy but long. Well done!
Château Information :
The great wine of Chateau Duhart-Milon is often described as a classical model of pure Pauillac appellation, it presents a "distinction aside finesse". The appreciation of the broker Abraham Lawton, 1815 "... it comes with great firmness, color and good sap quite pronounced," is an illustration of the continuing nature of Chateau Duhart-Milon (the "sap" of the first growths of the Medoc is beautifully defined as "something of the burning smell that pours the best sealing wax").
