Situated in the middle of Pauillac, Chateau Duhart-Milon is a perfect representation of this appellation. This 4th Classified Growth of Pauillac was founded in the 18th century under the leadership of the Lafite family, who covered Pauillac with vines at that time.
To date, the Duhart Milon vineyard covers 76 hectares. It extends to the west of another well-known property in Pauillac: Château Lafite Rothschild. The soils are composed of fine gravel, aeolian sands on tertiary limestone subsoils.
The mild winter induced an early bud burst on March 27 followed by mid-flowering on June 4. The light rains in mid-September were very beneficial at the end of of the maturation cycle at Duhart-Milon. The climatic conditions of this vintage allowed the berries to reach perfect ripeness in time for the harvest, in mid-September. The harvest took place from September 19 to October 4, starting with the Merlot and then with the Cabernet.
Cabernet sauvignon (70%), merlot (30%)
The Chateau Duhart-Milon 2019 is a wine that shows great maturity while retaining a nice fresh fruit.
