Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 94

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Duhart-Milon rocks up with upfront notions of baked plums, warm cassis and mulberries plus suggestions of cigar box, sandalwood, dried roses and forest floor. Full-bodied, rich and decadent in the mouth, the palate has a beautiful texture of velvety, fantastically ripe tannins and lovely freshness, finishing very long and very classy.

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2047

Tasted blind. Smudgy garnet. Dark fruited and a slight cedary note. Much lighter than I expected on the palate, sinewy and fresh. Elegant and nicely structured with a long finish. (JH) [12/02/2020]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030

Vinous 86-88

(73% cabernet sauvignon and 27% merlot) Opaque ruby-purple; this really stains the glass. Intense herbal, cola and coffee notes keep the blackcurrant aroma in check, but I find this nose ultimately lacks grace. Straightforward and austere, with blackberry, cedar and herbal flavors displaying good length. Finishes with a nice peppery kick but this Pauillac currently lacks a little charm and complexity. Perhaps all it needs is a little time. [Ian D’Agata, 05/01/2011]
