Duhart-Milon Rothschild 2001
Tasting Notes Duhart-Milon Rothschild 2001
Very tight on the nose with blackberry, cedar and a touch of liquorice developing with aeration. A full-bodied palate, good structure with cedar, blackberry and a touch of blueberry. Clean fruit, very pure with a focused, smoky finish. Excellent. Tasted October 2007.
The Rothschilds are making enormous investments in this estate, so I'm expecting a breakthrough effort to emerge (maybe the 2003 qualifies). The deep ruby-colored 2001 exhibits a moderately intense, noble bouquet of graphite, plums, and currants. Elegant (much in the style of Lafite) with medium body, sweet tannin, and a lively finish, it will be at its finest between 2007-2017.
