Duhart-Milon Rothschild 1995
Tasting Notes Duhart-Milon Rothschild 1995
Made from a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon/20% Merlot, the 1995 is slightly sweeter, more supple and slender than the broader-shouldered 1996. The wine's bouquet offers aromas of ripe berry fruit intermixed with minerals, toasty oak, and spice. Medium-bodied, with fine extract, it is a finesse-styled Pauillac (in the best sense of the word). Anticipated maturity: 2002-2014.
A moderate garnet core. The nose is full of strawberry and tobacco flavours which are turning leathery. Moderate to low fruit concentration on the palate which is fleshy with tarry notes developing. Fine fresh acidity. Cigar-box note on the finish. A fine decent Duhart-Milon but drinking now. Tasted June 2003.
