Chateau Duhart-Milon soil combines fine gravel, Aeolian sand and limestone. The 2008 Chateau Duhart-Milon is strong and heady to the nose. This Fourth Growth from Pauillac opens up to very ripe red fruit aromas. A pleasantly full palate follows the complex yet refined attack. The really long finish blossoms on a spicy note.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
A magnificent sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Duhart Milon is the shrewd consumer's wine to purchase by the case as prices do not yet reflect its qualitative resurgence. Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot that came in at 13.09% alcohol, it is a surprisingly intense effort displaying a marvelous texture, plenty of black currant, licorice, unsmoked cigar tobacco and earthy characteristics, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning purity as well as density. Enjoy this top-notch 2008 over the next 20-25 years.
