2016 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

SKU #1434058 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark I remember how delicious this was at en primeur, and it remains a stately, elongated, perfectly poised Pauillac. It's austere, certainly, but is also full of rich fruit pared down by a slate texture, the sense of minerality scraping along the palate as you approach the blackcurrant leaf and tobacco finish. It's excellent quality, and clearly a vintage that suits the personality of Duhart - juicy but restrained. Matured in 50% new oak. Drinking Window 2024 - 2040 (JA) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Enticing aromas of crushed berries, blackcurrants, sweet tobacco, hot stones and licorice follow through to a full body, chewy and dusty tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A juicy and savory young 2016. Try after 2024. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Ranking with the finest vintages of this wine to date, the 2016 Château Duhart Milon shows how successful the Médoc was in 2016. About as pure class as it gets, with full-bodied notes of red and black currants, tobacco leaf, graphite, and leafy herbs, this beauty hits the palate with sweet tannins, a stacked mid-palate, and a layered, deep, powerful texture. It’s about as sexy as Pauillac can be and has 2-3 decades ahead of it. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Blended of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot, the 2016 Duhart-Milon has a deep garnet-purple color and features plums preserves, wild blueberries and cassis scents with touches of violets and underbrush with a waft of tobacco. Medium-bodied and elegant, with a backbone of finely grained tannins and oodles of freshness, it has a great core of perfumed black fruit, finishing on an earthy note. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Duhart-Milon is absolutely gorgeous. I am pleasantly surprised to see how much textural and weight the 2016 has gained over the course of its aging. Dark, ample and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2016 is positively striking. Black cherry, chocolate, cacao, licorice and new leather fill out the wine's ample frame effortlessly. The 2016 is an especially brooding Duhart that needs cellaring. Even so, it is impressive today. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This bottling shows the vastly improved quality of this estate that still represents good value for the appellation and for its provenance as part of the Lafite-Rothschild stable. The wine is structured while full of ripe berry fruits. It has weight and den-sity, rich with swathes of delicious fruits as well as tannins. It will develop well; drink from 2023. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is very vivid, with racy violet, cassis and plum aromas and flavors coursing through, laced with a mouthwatering anise note and leading to a long, focused finish. Displays a terrific iron underpinning. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

K&L Notes

93 points Neal Martin for Vinous: "The 2016 Duhart-Milon has a pure, well-defined bouquet of blackberry, briar and crushed stone aromas, all very focused and penetrating. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and perhaps more approachable than the Duharts of the past, more malleable in the mouth. Quite rich in style considering the property in question, yet there is wonderful salinity toward the caressing finish. Excellent. 13% alcohol." (01/2019)
