About the Winery:
The Rothschild family acquired Château Duhart-Milon, a “Quatrièmes Cru” in the 1855 classification, from the Castejas of Pauillac, in 1962. The property was named after the Sieur of Duhart, gun-runner to Louis XIV, who originally owned the property, and from the name of the little hamlet of Milon which separates the Duhart-Milon vineyard from that of Château Lafite. Moulin de Duhart, Château Duhart-Milon’s second wine, is selected from vats of the “Grand Vin”. In general, the grapes are from the youngest part of the vineyard. Moulin de Duhart has several characteristics similar to the fine wine, but with a lesser potential for ageing as its ageing in barrels is much shorter. The vineyard covers 187 acres and is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (67%) and Merlot (33%).

About this Wine:
Moulin de Duhart is vinified using the traditional methods for the great Médoc wines, with destemming and crushing of the grapes before fermentation in concrete and stainless-steel vats. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 86°F, followed by maceration for about ten days. After malolactic fermentation, the wines are transferred to two-year-old French oak barrels and aged for 12 months.

Tasting notes:

Beautiful deep, dark color. The nose reveals superb roasted notes. These are followed by aromas of ripe red fruit, particularly fresh cherries. On the palate, the notes remain delicate. The wine gradually develops body while remaining very well-balanced. The hint of sweetness on the finish is characteristic of the 2019 vintage.

Grape Composition: 58% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon
Acidity; 3.75
Alcohol :13.5%

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"Quite seductive heady fruit, nuanced and slightly perfumed. Lovely pink colour. Good juicy impact with soft, chalky tannins that coat the top and sides of the mouth. I love the focus on the aromatics as opposed to just the fruit with brambles, clove and liquorice stick nuances. Good persistency. Lots of work went into the Merlots in this vintage from both clay and gravel - not pushing them too far in order to retain refinement. A juicy, sappy and approachable second wine." - GH (Jan 2022)
