About Chateau Duhart Milon
Chateau Duhart-Milon takes its name from Milon, the Pauillac village where its vineyards lie, and their former owner, said to be the widow of a pirate in the service of Louis XV. Classified as a Fourth Growth in 1855, Duhart-Milon was headed steadily downhill until the Rothschild family rescued the estate--a familiar pattern in Paulliac--in 1962.
88-91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2004
(a 73/27 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot) Bright ruby-red. Blackcurrant, blueberry, black cherry, violet, tobacco, fresh herbs and currant leaf on the slightly medicinal, quintessential cabernet nose. Then broad, fat and rich, with a layered texture and enticing sweetness. Showing its cabernet side today, but this is thoroughly ripe, seamless cabernet.
