2010 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1066909 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Gravel over limestone, similar to Château Lafite Rothschild and under the same ownership. Cooler northern exposure of the terroir requires more time to ripen, but that was no problem in 2010. This has ripe fruit with graphite and wet stone. It may not be as dense as Clerc Milon, but the expression of finesse and refinement is unmistakable. Long, subtle finish. Pleasing, high-toned fruit perfectly matches grilled lamb chops with roast potatoes. (PK) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

Outer quote mark Like a lot of 2010s, the 2010 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild is tight and backward, yet has serious potential. Sporting a deep ruby/purple color and classic notes of currants, lead pencil shavings, cedarwood and saddle leather, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a tight, firm focused texture and beautiful concentration. Its tannins are present, yet ripe and integrated, and it has the purity and freshness that’s the hallmark of this great, great vintage. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Duhart-Milon rocks up with upfront notions of baked plums, warm cassis and mulberries plus suggestions of cigar box, sandalwood, dried roses and forest floor. Full-bodied, rich and decadent in the mouth, the palate has a beautiful texture of velvety, fantastically ripe tannins and lovely freshness, finishing very long and very classy.

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Duhart-Milon has an intense but tightly coiled nose of black fruit laced with cedar and mint. I would have liked to see a little more precision. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and very well judged acidity. There is an appealing sense of symmetry here with fine precision and tension on the finish. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Dark fruited and a slight cedary note. Much lighter than I expected on the palate, sinewy and fresh. Elegant and nicely structured with a long finish. 17/20 points (JH) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
