  • A magnificent sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Duhart Milon is the shrewd consumer’s wine to purchase by the case as prices do not yet reflect its qualitative resurgence. Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot that came in at 13.09% alcohol, it is a surprisingly intense effort displaying a marvelous texture, plenty of black currant, licorice, unsmoked cigar tobacco and earthy characteristics, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning purity as well as density. Enjoy this top-notch 2008 over the next 20-25 years

  • Lead pencil and tobacco with licorice and currants. Full and super refined with a currants and light spice character. Open and refined and delicious bottle already.

  • Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. The Duhart Milon 2008 is really turning into a great Pauillac. It has a lovely, intense bouquet with blackberry, undergrowth and a touch of game with well integrated oak. Graphite aromas emerge with time. The palate is well balanced, quite austere with upfront graphite flavours, very classic with good substance on the foursquare, almost severe on the finish that is fresh and lively. One of the few easily identified under blind conditions. Tasted January 2012.
