Duhart-Milon Rothschild 1997
Tasting Notes Duhart-Milon Rothschild 1997
This impressively saturated dark ruby/purple-colored wine offers up copious quantities of sweet black currant fruit, vanilla, and minerals. Suave, with sweet fruit on the attack, medium body, ripe tannin, and a lush finish, it will drink well for a decade or more.
I recall this being quite disappointing less time I tried this in 2004 but here, certainly the nose has opened up with notes of blueberry, blackberry, graphite and a touch of fig with fine definition. The palate is high-toned, smooth tannins, racy acidity with blackberry, fig, dates and a slightly abrupt finish. Fully mature and there is a slight balsamic quality on the aftertaste. Drink now-2010. Tasted September 2008.
