A DEAD RINGER FOR LAFITE IN A GREAT VINTAGE.
Totally opaque inky black crimson red colour with dark crimson black tinged hue. Nosing reveals a refined sniff of blackcurrant intertwined with mulberry and violets followed by some cedary cigar box, earth and spice. Medium weight, very elegant and structured the palate features flavours of blackcurrant, cigar box and mulberry with some underlying earthy cedar and spice. Dryish finish with very fine grained but assertive tannins providing the framework. Long refined aftertaste of blackcurrant, earthy cigar box and spice. A classic Bordeaux that showcases its class and finesse in preference to sheer weight and power.
Cellar 8-10 years (2022-2024).
If you can’t afford Lafite-Rothschild (few can) or even their second wine, Carruades de Lafite, you still have Duhart Milon, which has become a profound wine over the last 5-7 years due to the extensive amount of attention and investment the Rothschilds have pumped into this estate. This blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot is fabulous, a dead ringer for Lafite in a great vintage. (It is probably better than many of the Lafites of the 1960s and 1970s, and even some of the vintages in the 1980s.) Dense purple, with classic notes of cedar and lead pencil shavings as well as gobs of black currants and licorice, the wine has a full-bodied mouthfeel with fabulous precision and density. It also possesses a long, silky finish with moderately high tannins, but they are ripe and well-integrated. The wood is clearly pushed to the background in this dense, full-bodied Pauillac, which should drink beautifully for 30+ years...
Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate
A wine with an intense sous bois, fresh tobacco and dried flower character on the nose and palate. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and an attractive finish. It's structured yet polished with a beauty and stature. Try in 2015.
