Winemaker Notes:

"Château Duhart-Milon’s grand vin is often described as a model of the Pauillac appellation. The broker Guillaume Lawton noted as early as 1815 that “it is very robust, with a fine color, and quite pronounced sappiness” (he describes the “sappiness” of the Médoc’s premiers crus as “something like the odor given off by finest sealing wax when it is burned”). Blend: 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot"


96 James Suckling
"This is so refined with beautiful currant, berry and some subtle chocolate and coffee. It’s full and very subtle with fine tannins that have a long finish. Such purity and finesse with structure. Fresh and savory. 72% cabernet sauvignon and 28% merlot."
95 Decanter
"Restrained and sombre at first, but carefully constructed, with a rippling muscular texture, full of firm tannins with bright acidities underneath. Like the precision and the slightly austere cool blue fruits, pencil lead and liquorice root. Elegant, precise, feels very Pauillac in its density combined with fine tannins that have life and lift on the finish."

94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The most underrated wine in the Lafite stable these days has put in another strong performance with the 2020 Duhart-Milon, as this somewhat cooler, later-ripening site is well adapted to warmer vintages. Unfurling to reveal aromas of cassis, plums, cigar wrapper, loamy soil and violets, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and layered, with polished tannins, terrific depth at the core and a long, sapid finish. Best After 2025

94 Jeb Dunnuck

"The 2020 Chateau Duhart-Milon is a much more concentrated, serious wine. Based on 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot hitting 12.5% natural alcohol, with a pH of 3.91, its deep ruby/plum color is followed by medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of darker currants, cherries, damp earth, ripe tobacco, and graphite. Beautifully balanced, elegant, and straight-up seamless, it shows the classic, focused style of the vintage and will be a modern day classic from this terroir. Best After 2027."

94 Wine Enthusiast

"This ripe wine has some serious tannins and rich black fruits. Behind the structure, a swathe of black fruits gives the wine concentration and ripeness."

93 Vinous

"The 2020 Duhart-Milon is a powerful wine, with Cabernet Sauvignon driving the blends with tons of savory and earthy character. Dark cherry, dried herbs, scorched earth, tobacco, licorice, and menthol are all laced together. This virile, somber Pauillac needs time in the bottle to blossom. I won't be surprised if it is even better in another few years' time. This opens beautifully with time."
