Dear Wine Lover,
After many En Primeurs 2011 we get back to the outstanding 2009 vintage of which we are glad to offer you a classic Bordeaux wine from prestigious Paulliac region, Duhart Milon 2009.
Chateau Duhart-Milon has been acquired by Barons de Rothschild in 1962 from the Castéja family. Since then it has been directed by the same wine experts who work at the neighbor Chateau Lafite. Comparing different vintages over the years the improvement in quality has been tangible, and under the management of Charles Chevalier, the 2009 vintage is the most impressive wine released by the Chateau since now.
Duhart Milon 2009 was really appreciated by Robert Parker who stated: “The Rothschilds have invested heavily in resurrecting this property to near super-star status, and the 2009 appears to be the finest Duhart I have ever tasted."
This wine is one of the most beautiful expressions of Pauillac Terroir, and that’s why we want to propose you today Duhart Milon 2009.
75.0 cl Duhart Milon - Pauillac 2009 CHF 105.00 (CHF 113,40 VAT Included)
Robert Parker 97 Points: "A blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot, it displays an inky/blue/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, forest floor, licorice, lead pencil, cedar and subtle barrique smells. Viscous and full-bodied, it is the most concentrated and broadest example of this cuvee I have tasted in over three decades. It will be ready to drink in 5-7 years and should last for three decades or more. Consumers looking to maximize value should be checking out Duhart Milon, as this may be the single smartest purchase in this great and historic vintage!
Since few consumers other than Chinese billionaires can afford wines such as Lafite Rothschild, perhaps it is time for readers to take a look at Duhart Milon, which sells for less than Lafite’s second wine. The Rothschilds have invested heavily in resurrecting this property to near super-star status, and the 2009 appears to be the finest Duhart I have ever tasted."
