Moulin de Duhart 2018 Magnum, A.C. Pauillac

£95.00

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 characteristics similar to the grand vin, but with less potential for ageing as its barrel ageing period is shorter. It should be consumed younger than its more robust counterpart. The 2018 vintage is one of the best young Moulin we have tasted, and this magnum format will allow this beautiful wine to evolve majestically over the next two decades.

Tasting notes

Moulin de Duhart is the most cost-effective way of experiencing Lafite’s celebrated ‘house style’. This Merlot rich Pauillac embodies Lafite’s renowned elegance and sophistication. The climatic conditions of 2018 were ideal producing a rich fruit-forward vintage with great structure and ability to cellar. After decanting there’s black cherries, cassis, cloves and lavender with classic minerality and pencil shavings. Generous and supple on the palate. A wonderful Moulin with richness and freshness leading to a lengthy finish. Great stuff from the team at Duhart Milon!
