2017 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

SKU #1445124 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is classical in style with lead pencil and sweet tobacco to the currant and plum undertones. Warm and cool at the same time. Full-bodied, tight and reserved with very polished, creamy tannins. It goes on and on. Compact, creamy texture. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is pretty austere, with tight tannins and a cassis and blueberry cool fruit feel, calm and collected with a juicy finish. A little more old school Duhart than we have got used to over the past few vintages, but one that suggests that this will do what all DBR Pauillac wines do... and age. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This structured wine has the freshest fruit, crisp with black currants. The core of dryness is important, bringing out density to balance the light touch at the back of the wine. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chateau Duhart-Milon is terrific, offering tons of Pauillac character in its smoked tobacco, blackcurrant, new leather, and spicy, earthy aromas and flavors. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully textured, it has the forward, elegant, classic style of the vintage and will continue drinking beautifully for 20-25 years or more. It’s a hidden gem in the vintage I’d be thrilled to have in the cellar. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Blended of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot, the 2017 Duhart-Milon is deep garnet-purple colored and comes tumbling freely out of the glass with open, expressive black plums, Black Forest cake and blueberry compote notes plus savory wafts of woodsmoke, beef drippings, black olives and cumin seed with an emerging touch of cassis. Medium-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with juicy black plum flavors and a plush texture, lifted by seamless freshness, finishing spicy. Nicely done. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Duhart-Milon is a wine that I expressed reservations towards out of barrel. Since then, the nose has certainly come out of its shell with blackberry, raspberry, briary and light mint aromas, although there is something of the Duhart "DNA" that is absent. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a potent graphite character coming through... A-ha, not here is the Duhart signature! The acidity is nicely tuned and (like the Carruades de Lafite), there is a pleasant briny/marine character towards the finish. That said, it just needs more cohesion and finesse on the finish to really convince that it is a top-flight Duhart. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
