The 2021 from Ch. Duhart-Milon has the highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon to date – representing 81% of the blend (with 19% Merlot). As with all the Lafite wines this year, there’s a little more press wine in the blend – 14.5% here. Aged in 50% new oak, the resulting wine is another impressive offering from the estate, with the characteristic elegance that we expect of this Pauillac First Growth’s expert team. The nose is classic, pinpoint Pauillac – dominated by graphite shavings, with pure, sweet cassis and a lift of violet aromatics. There’s a rush of plush and juicy fruit on the mid-palate, with chalky tannins and creamy oak, all balanced by a bite of redcurrant acidity. Aristocratic in general, the finish is expressive and explosive, lifted by the acidity. Alcohol is the same as 2020 at 13%.
