Château Duhart Milon





Grape Variety:

Cab Sauvignon Merlot

Château Duhart Milon Rothschild, 4eme Cru Classé, Pauillac, 2017

Tasting Note:

The 2017 Duhart Milon is produced from 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot. We are often fans of this wine, but this seems a little anodyne. Initially reserved, then notes of almond and cherry, bramble and garrigue followed by pure crisp red fruit. It is all very attractive, but it lacks thrust and you want it to deliver a bit more on the mid-palate. The tannins are quite sumptuous and have a nice velour texture; there is nothing out of place and it finishes with pure raspberry, a lick of minerality and a lovely saline touch. If it puts on some muscle during elevage, it will be a successful wine.
