Duhart Milon Rothschild 2019
Pauillac€ 70.18/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
James Suckling – 95-96/100
Wine Advocate – 92-94/100
The 2019 Duhart-Milon is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, harvested from the 19th of September to the 4th of October. Deep garnet-purple in color, it springs from the glass with vivacious notes of plums preserves, black raspberries and blackcurrant pastilles with suggestions of menthol, dark chocolate, pencil lead and woodsmoke plus a touch of garrigue. Medium-bodied, the palate is spritely and refreshing, with bags of juicy, mint-laced black fruits and an approachable, plush texture, finishing long and lively.
Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 91-93/100
The 2019 Duhart-Milon is terrific. The benefits of a cool site in a warm year are evident. Duhart does a very nice job of balancing those contrasting elements with its blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. Grilled herbs, menthol, licorice and dried herbs all grace this super-expressive, mid-weight Pauillac. Duhart is a bit unyielding today, but that should not be an issue in another few years’ time. This is very nicely done.
J.M. Quarin – 90/100
Couleur sombre, intense, aux reflets noirs. Nez très aromatique, sentant bon les fruits noirs. Bouche tendre, au corps parfumé, savoureux et agréable, se développant tout en arômes plutôt qu’en matière. Bonne longueur. Assemblage : 70 % cabernet sauvignon, 30 % merlot.
