€ 90,69 (in Vat)
|Brand||Chateau Duhart Milon|
|Grape||Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Bordeaux Blend|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot, this 2012 exhibits good ripeness as well as a strong herbaceous streak throughout the aromas and flavors. It is a very good, medium-bodied effort, but it is not as exceptional as some of the Duharts we have seen in recent vintages (2008, 2009 and 2010). It is slightly richer than the second wine of Lafite Rothschild, Carruades.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
The savory tobacco and cassis notes race along, with a charcoal frame. A backdrop of kirsch fill this out, displaying a peppery hint on the lightly dusty finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
