Both 2009 and 2010 were exceptional vintage years for Chateau Duhart-Milon. Located in Pauillac, the vineyard lies on fine gravel, sand, and limestone mix. This fabulous vintage produced delicate tannins; supple at first, then gradually increasing in power without being weak or coarse. The 2010 Chateau Duhart-Milon carries a lovely density and a neat finish: a quite racy Pauillac.
Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Duhart-Milon rocks up with upfront notions of baked plums, warm cassis and mulberries plus suggestions of cigar box, sandalwood, dried roses and forest floor. Full-bodied, rich and decadent in the mouth, the palate has a beautiful texture of velvety, fantastically ripe tannins and lovely freshness, finishing very long and very classy.
