Château Duhart Milon Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$115

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!

Opened up after 3 hours of decanting. Current and Cassis with Cranberry and some tart cherries. Tobacco, hint of oak, and some Forest create a perfect balance of all aspects.

Well structured but too soon to open. Somewhat closed down. Needs at least 5 more years.

(17/20) Вино с насыщенным ароматом спелых чёрных ягод, сладких специй, кофе и шоколада. Тельное с мягкими и бархатистыми танинами. Шоколадно-ягодное во вкусе. Отлично!

20/IV/2017 В аромате крепкий чёрный чай, спелая чёрная смородина, черешня, лакричные конфеты, свежая мята. Полное тело, во вкусе чёрная смородина, вишня, прожаренный бекон. Округлое, с сочной кислотностью и мягкими танинами. 17/20
