Château Duhart-Milon was classified as Fourth Growth in 1855, and it is one of the few wineries lacking a real castle, and its wine is actually located on the side road of Pauillac Brewed in a large warehouse. This does not seem to cause any harm to the quality of the wine, and the current wine quality of the winery is quite good.


The origin of Château Duhart-Milon is a bit obscure, and the history of the winery before the French Revolution is no longer exquisite. The "Milon" in the name of the winery is quoted from a small village of the same name, located in the northwest of the Pauillac appellation area, not far from the winery's vineyards.


Like many famous chateaus, Château Duhart-Milon was dilapidated in the two world wars. The vineyards were deserted and even overgrown with weeds until they were bought by the neighboring Château Lafite-Rothschild (first-class winery) in 1962.


Château Lafite-Rothschild has carried out a thorough cleaning of the vineyards, renovated the wine cellar, purchased advanced fermentation equipment and reinstalled the drainage system. With the purchase of new plots and the active implementation of the replanting plan, the area of ​​the vineyard has become significant The improvement.


Nowadays, under the strict management of Château Lafite-Rothschild and the "blessing" of the halo, it has become famous and has received many praises.


==========================


Chateau Duhart Milon 2013, Pauillac 750ml


The 2013 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, a blend of 20% Merlot and 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, has a simple bouquet for Duhart, though one that is not unpleasurable with muted scents of red plum and boysenberry fruit. Perhaps what the challenging growing season did was denude this Pauillac of terroir expression since I found little of that trademark pencil lead aroma. The palate is medium-bodied and quite rounded in the mouth, slightly lower in acidity than I was expecting, but cohesive with black fruit tinged with cedar and leather. It is a forward Duhart-Milon with moderate depth but decent length. It might be the earliest drinking and most approachable Duhart that I have encountered, but it still has drinking pleasure to offer.
