Description

“The smoke, almond, dark-berry and plum character is impressive to this young Duhart. Full body, round and silky tannins and beautiful fruit and spice undertones. Plenty of coffee and cedar flavors at the end. A pretty Duhart. Needs four or five years bottle age.” (2/2018) James Suckling, 93 pts

“Firm and tannic, this wine’s rich structure is balanced by a concentrated blackberry flavor and bright acidity. Drink from 2026.” (4/2018) Wine Enthusiast, 98 pts

“The 2015 Duhart-Milon comes across as much tighter and more reticent than it did from barrel, but some, or, perhaps, all, of that might be attributable the post-bottling shock. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s plentiful sensual charms, with hints of crushed flowers, tobacco, mint, leather and smoke that add nuance throughout. The 2015 opens up nicely with air, which leads me to believe that all the 2015 needs is time in bottle.” (2/2018) Antonio Galloni for Vinous, 91 pts

“This has a mix of silky and charcoal-edged texture carrying gently steeped black currant, plum and cherry fruit flavors along, while lovely perfumed black tea and violet notes infuse the finish. Shows sneaky length, with a lingering iron detail. Just a touch shy on depth overall. Best from 2020 through 2031.”  (3/2018) Wine Spectator, 91 pts

“This has an abundance of tobacco notes, with crushed black fruits and dark chocolate. We are clearly striding through Pauillac here, and this is a very good wine, but not the best Duhart of recent years – for me you have to head to 2016 for that. Things taper off quicker than expected through the mid-palate, although there is a black cherry sweetness that is very attractive. 50% new oak.” (11/2017) Jane Anson for Decanter, 90 pts

“The 2015 Duhart Milon is a surprisingly charming, elegant and medium-bodied Pauillac that’s 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot that was brought up in 40% new French oak. With perfumed notes of spice-box, cedarwood, toast, and sweet black currant fruit, it has sweet tannin and is already accessible, yet will cruise for two decades.” (11/2017) Jeb Dunnuck, 90 pts

“Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot and aged for 14 months in barrels, 50% new, the 2015 Duhart-Milon has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and an open, expressive nose of warm red currants, black raspberries and spice cake with nuances of cedar chest, bay leaves and tobacco plus a waft of rose hips. Medium-bodied, vibrant and refreshing in the mouth, it has a good amount of chewy tannins and layers of lively red and black fruits, finishing on an earthy note.”  (2/2018) Lisa Perrotti Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, 90 pts
