Critic Notes

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. Tasted non-blind. WineSpectator.com—J.M.

Score: 91-94/100Wine Spectator

62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot. Darker in fruit character than Carruades and with some iodine minerality. Less expressive on the nose but richer and more concentrated on the palate, opening up on the mid palate before finishing firmly. Very clean and correct. FINE+RARE

Score: 16.5-/20FINE+RARE

This property has enjoyed the considerable investments from the Rothschild family and the quality of the wines over the last generation has been increasingly impressive. I’ve always written that if you can’t afford Lafite Rothschild, why not try Duhart Milon, which is not far off the quality of its much more famous neighbor. Spicy, deep ruby/purple with notes of cassis, cedar wood and spice box, the wine is soft, round, juicy, medium-bodied and ideal for drinking now and over the next 15 or so years. It is not one of their finest efforts, but it is certainly well-made, supple-textured and seductive.| eRobertParker.com.April, 2015
