Chateau Duhart-Milon 2005, Grand Cru Classe Pauillac

£155.00

Chateau Duhart-Milon stands as the only 4th Growth to come out of Pauillac. Situated just South East of (and owned by) Chateau Lafite Rothschild, it’s not hard to see why Duhart-Milon is referred to as “Baby Lafite”, especially since it was originally Lafite’s second wine! The Rothschild’s took ownership in 1962 and have expanded the size and scope of the vineyard, as well as introducing a second wine to ensure the quality from the top cuvee. Expect elegance, purity, finesse and a sense of place from every vintage.

Tasting notes

One of the finest vintages of Duhart-Milon ever produced and drinking exceptionally well. The 2005 has power and intensity that are revealed from behind curtains of elegance. The nose displays a bouquet of truffle, black olive, dark fruit, tobacco and redcurrant. Moving away from the nose and onto the palate, expect velvety tannins and crisp acidity keeping it lively. Towards the end of the palate expect hints of spice and graphite minerality.
