Chateau Duhart Milon 2000
|Brand||Chateau Duhart Milon|
|Grape||Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Bordeaux Blend|
An outstanding Duhart, certainly one of the best produced at this estate since the 1996, 1986, and 1982, this blend of 80.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19.5% Merlot reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as notes of lead pencil intermixed with wet stones, black currants, and a certain leafiness. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and dense, but tightly-knit, with considerable tannin, it will require patience. For those willing to wait, it will be a sleeper of the vintage.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
Loads of plum, tobacco, meaty and cedary character on the nose. Full-bodied, with lots of chewy tannins and a long, luscious finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
