Moulin de Duhart 2016 three bottle case, A.C Pauillac

£116.85 £89.85

Château Duhart-Milon’s second wine is selected on the same basis as the “Grand Vin”. In general, the grapes are from the younger plots in the vineyard. Moulin de Duhart has several similar comparisons to the Grand Vin displaying that classic Lafite minerality with layers of complexity and elegance. Moulin will drink much better in it’s youth than its counterpart, and this wonderful 2016 vintage is already showing its class.

Tasting notes

Beautiful dark ruby with no purple edge. The nose is fresh with red fruit, toasted spice, pencil shavings, cinnamon, warm slate and blackcurrant. The oak is well-integrated.  The palate is pleasant, soft and elegant with layers of fruit and spice. The tannins remain silky smooth and round. Excellent length, very much in the classic style of Duhart’s terroir. Moulin de Duhart 2016 isn’t one of those wines that shows everything it has upfront, it slowly reveals its complexity throughout the course of the evening. Classically styled and brilliant value Pauillac – two terms that aren’t usually mentioned in the same sentence.
