CHATEAU DUHART MILON, 2006

PAUILLAC

“In 1962, the Rothschild family bought the vineyard which had collapsed because of successive changes of ownership (five in twenty five years). The 1956 frost made the situation worse again. Fifty years later, after several works, its shine and its initial position are back as we can see with this intense ruby 2003. On the nose, the grilled stave matches with the fruit (morello cherry). After a gentle attack, a round and smooth body, in harmony with ripe tannins, appears on the palate.” - Le Guide Hachette des Vins
