Chateau Duhart-Milon 2010, Grand Cru Classé Pauillac
Chateau Duhart-Milon stands as the only 4th Growth to come out of Pauillac. Situated just South East of Chateau Lafite Rothschild, it’s not hard to see why Duhart-Milon is referred to as “Baby Lafite”, especially considering the vineyards of Duhart Milon were responsible for the fruit that created Lafite’s second wine in the 1800’s. The Rothschild’s took ownership in 1962 and have worked tirelessly in the vineyard and vat room to improve the resulting wines. Expect elegance, purity, finesse and a sense of place from every vintage.

The 2010 vintage was considered superb for Bordeaux, and Duhart Milon performed brilliantly creating a modern classic. This rich and dense Pauillac packs bags of smoky black fruit, toasted vanilla, cedar, liquorice, pencil shavings and peppery spice. This vintage will drink beautifully for another decade or so.

Château d’Armailhac 2009, Grand Cru Classe Pauillac£95.00 Buy The 2009 vintage was a triumphant return to form for Bordeaux. Chateau d'Armailhac capitalized on the amazing weather for their wine. On the nose expect to find some development in the forms of ripe blackcurrants, bilberry, cedar, tobacco and a hint of smokiness. The palate is still very fresh with a considerate amount of dark fruit, mocha and menthol notes. A long decant is necessary to make the most of this vintage.
Pauillac Special Reserve 2016, A.C. Pauillac£32.95 Buy The 2016 harvest brought together all the key ingredients for a fabulous vintage. DBR Lafite have produced a rich yet precise Pauillac, similar in style to the 1990 vintage. Lafite rarely does exuberance, true to form the aroma needs coaxing from the glass. After a few minutes there's cool blackberry coulis, warm slate, fresh tobacco, cedar, violets and graphite. The palate is compact and concentrated with fine tannins. You can feel the quality, but it is slightly reserved in the mid-palate. Whilst it offers very enjoyable drinking you can't help feel its best days lay ahead. It is very 'Lafite' in style and typical of the vintage. Patience will be rewarded.
