2009 may turn out to be among the greatest vintages ever in the Medoc. The 2009 appears to be the finest Duhart Milon yet made. The Rothschild family has invested heavily in this estate over the last 20 years in order to upgrade the quality, and their investments have certainly paid off handsomely. A blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot, the 2009's opaque purple color is followed by an extraordinary perfume of creme de cassis, violets, graphite, and subtle wood. This full-bodied, intense, voluptuously textured, pure, seductive wine seems more open-knit and opulent than the more structured Carruades de Lafite. Nevertheless, the Duhart requires 3-5 years of cellaring, and should drink well for 30+ years. Bravo! Robert Parker

Possibly the opposite of an in-your-face cab. Subtle, rounded, with restrained notes of redcurrant and sandalwood.

Interesting. Figured I would check into this. Dark cherries and chocolate cake. Approachable but not exactly ready. Still a twinge of heat, but sweet tannin and great nose. Not a WOW 09, but more something to drink to get a glimpse of how your 09's are doing. Parker said 97... Maybe in 3-4 more years...good but not great.
