A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot, aged in 50% new oak. Dark Ruby with dark ripe berry fruit aromas and spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry and cherry with toasty herb spice and cedar notes. Fine tannins, full body on long finish ending with developing fruit, oak and spice. Great now. Should continue to benefit with cellar time. Nice!

The 2017 Duhart-Milon is a wine that I expressed reservations towards out of barrel. Since then, the nose has certainly come out of its shell with blackberry, raspberry, briary and light mint aromas, although there is something of the Duhart "DNA" that is absent. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a potent graphite character coming through... A-ha, not here is the Duhart signature! The acidity is nicely tuned and (like the Carruades de Lafite), there is a pleasant briny/marine character towards the finish. That said, it just needs more cohesion and finesse on the finish to really convince that it is a top-flight Duhart. (Neal Martin, Vinous, February 2020)
