CHÂTEAU DUHART MILON ROTHSCHILD
2003 4ème Cru Classé Pauillac
|Grapes||Cab Franc, Merlot, Cab Sauv|
|Classification||4ème Cru Classé|
Initially dumber and darker than the Carruades. Black cherry fruit, full powerful and harmonious with a well-integrated spice of oak. Very suave, ripe and attractive, and very long. As in the last few vintages, likely to be a great value buy. L&S (Mar 2005)

(a 73/27 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot) Bright ruby-red. Blackcurrant, blueberry, black cherry, violet, tobacco, fresh herbs and currant leaf on the slightly medicinal, quintessential cabernet nose. Then broad, fat and rich, with a layered texture and enticing sweetness. Showing its cabernet side today, but this is thoroughly ripe, seamless cabernet.

A spectacular wine, and one that could have been bought for a song when it was released, this blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot was cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare. Strutting all of its nobility, richness and majesty in 2014, it boasts abundant notes of cedarwood, creme de cassis, licorice and a hint of lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied, rich, dense and fully mature, it is capable of lasting another 7-10 years. This beauty is a big-time sleeper of the vintage. 2014-2024 Rating: 94 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Aug 2014)
Mid to dark crimson. Rich, sweet and raisiny on the nose. Very sweet indeed – a bit uncomfortable in that respect actually. With some drying tannins on the end. Claggy on the palate. 2009-2013 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 2011)
