'Sweet berries and cherries on the nose with sweet tobacco, lead pencil and blackcurrants. It’s full-bodied and very rich with layers of fruit and creamy tannins intertwined. Extremely long and creamy. Great Duhart. Try after 2026.' – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 96/100 (Mar 2021)

'One of the real successes of the Lafite stable in 2018. You get the rich, smooth texture straight off the nose, continued by a velvety texture and a full mouthfeel. Serious with a long life ahead. This is one of the more voluptuous Duhart-Milons that I have tasted, and will expand the audience for this wine in my opinion. Plenty of black fruits, bitter chocolate, liquorice, slate and pencil lead. Ticks the boxes of both Pauillac and Cabernet Sauvignon character. Very good-quality. 3.84pH and a yield of 37.5hl/ha. Drinking Window 2026 - 2044.' – Jane Anson, Decanter, 95/100 (Nov 2020)

'This is a ripe, classic Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine. Its strict initial character blossoms out into rich black-currant flavors that exude class. Backed by acidity and with hints of the wood aging still in place, the wine is just beginning its journey. Drink from 2027.' – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 95/100 (May 2021)

'The 2018 Duhart-Milon is composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot. With 14% alcohol, it has a deep garnet-purple color and a seductively ripe, opulent nose of plum preserves, blackberry pie and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of spice cake, potpourri, sandalwood and eucalyptus oil. Medium-bodied, it is jam-packed with rich, spicy black fruit preserves, with floral accents and a velvety texture, finishing long and fragrant. So. Good. Drink 2023-2040.' – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, 94+/100 (May 2021)

'Just as it was from barrel, the 2018 Duhart-Milon is a real powerhouse. Black cherry, gravel, spice, espresso and savory herbs infuse the 2018 with notable depth and power. A brooding, virile wine, the Duhart-Milon packs a serious punch. I would give it a few years to soften. The 2018 has really come together since en primeur. In fact, the bottled wine bears little semblance to the en primeur sample, which is a very good thing. There is real density and weight here, with all of the natural richness of the year. Drink 2026-2043.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 94/100 (Mar 2021)

'This is packed with succulent blackberry and black currant fruit, along with mulling spice, sweet tobacco, licorice root and alder notes. Youthfully jumbled, but the pieces are there, the mouthfeel is alluring and the length is there for sure. For the cellar.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 93/100 (Mar 2021)

'Black core with barely a rim. So wonderfully scented, like the Clerc Milon. Blackcurrant tea, pure cassis, almost floral, but so pretty. Firm and dry but super-refined on the palate, dry tannic finesse. Finely balanced for the long term. Dark and savoury and full of such refined elegance and dark finesse. A beauty. Drink 2028-2038.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20 (Apr 2019)

Producer information Château Duhart-Milon was originally Château Milon and was referred to as the second wine of Lafite. Between 1830 - 1840 the Castéja family inherited the estate. In 1937 it was sold off and went through five different owners until 1962 when the Rothschild family purchased the property. At the time of the purchase, the property was left in very bad condition and required major renovations. After the vineyards were replanted and the cellars and facilities were restored, Château Duhart-Milon was on it’s way up again. By 2008, the wine of Duhart Milon increased in quality, stature and price and received critical acclaim.
