Château Duhart Milon Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$149

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

Ripe tannins, hint of Brett. A lot going on in the glass. Coffee Bean, Tobacco, Bell Pepper. A true warm vintage Medoc!

Extremely disappointed. Fourth growth, one of the best years in Bordeaux and a mediocre wine at best. Medium bodied, no finish, no minerality. Only oak upfront and flat dark juice during the middle. Petered out after about an hour and a half.

Great leathery blackberry aroma and not that tannic. Improved and opened up nicely after being open for a half hour. Long, consistent finish. Would definitely try again and seemed like a decent value @ $100 from binnys
