Wine Advocate 96 points - 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. (Feb 2013)
A historic property in the Médoc region of France, Château Duhart-Milon is named for the Sieur of Duhart, a gunrunner to Louis XIV who once owned the land, and for the tiny hamlet of Milon, which stands on a knoll separating this vineyard from that of Château Lafite. Classified as a Fourth Growth estate, the Château was acquired in 1962 by the Rothschild family, which has devoted considerable resources to returning the wine to its former glory.
