Dense purple, with classic notes of cedar and lead pencil shavings as well as gobs of back currants and licorice, the wine has a full-bodied mouthfeel with fabulous precision and density. It also possesses a long, silky finish with moderately high tannins, but they are ripe and well-integrated. The wood is clearly pushed to the background in this dense, full-bodied Pauillac, which should drink beautifully for 30+ years. ||If you can’t afford Lafite-Rothschild (few can)or even their second wine, Carruades de Lafite, you still have Duhart Milon, which has become a profound wine over the last 5-7 years due to the extensive amount of attention and investment the Rothschilds have pumped into this estate. This blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot is fabulous, a dead ringer for Lafite in a great vintage. (It is probably better than many of the Lafites of the 1960s and 1970s, and even some of the vintages in the 1980s.) Wine Advocate.February, 2013

A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon (slightly less than 2009) and 27% Merlot, cropped between 24th September and 12th October, the Duhart has a well-defined, classic Cabernet bouquet with blackberry, smoke and a touch of cigar box. Quite Zen-like and introspective in a way but very fine delineation and class. The palate is very well balanced with very ripe Cabernet fruit, just a touch of spice and dried herbs coming through, very Duhart, very Pauillac in style with a slightly austere Pauillac finish that I really appreciate. I probably prefer this to the 2009. Excellent. Drink 2017-2030+ Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

This plump red offers black tea, warm ganache, fig and black currant confiture notes backed by a smoky finish, with pillowy but lengthy tannins. Acidity then rushes in at the very end, adding more length. An impressive step up for this wine. Tasted non-blind. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot. Extremely deep crimson. Sweet pruney start – looks much more intense than Carruades, presumably because of all the Cabernet. Very introvert. not much nose. Juicy, fresh and liquorice – lots of energy. Lots of freshness. Dry finish. Very subtle but with extremely marked tannins. Just a little rugged. But the fruit is wonderfully concentrated. jancisrobinson.com

Concentrated black fruits, powerful yet lifted, structured and long term elegance, a great Duhart. Drink 2020-35. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com>/b>

The deep ruby 2010 Duhart-Milon offers up notes of blackberries, black cherries and blackcurrant, supported by densely packed fruit flavours of amazing freshness and depth. The wine has a long length and the thick, rich texture supports the ripe blackberry flavours. This vineyard was bought in 1962 by the Barons de Rothschild group and all the vines were replanted. thus the vines are about 30 years old. This wine has great aging potential ? keep for at least eight years before opening. asianpalate.com

Very dark in colour. This is a big, masculine beast this year, but again that juicy underlying fruit is a delight and like the best wines this year there is space in the fruit.
