Château-Duhart-Milon Pauillac 2008
Wine EnthusiastWith it cellars in a back street of Pauillac, this wine is often overlooked. But with the same winemaking team as Lafite, it represents a serious wine, solid, chunky, containing delicious fruit. The wood is noticeable at present, but will certainly mingle effortlessly in a few years.
Wine SpectatorMint, sage and tobacco lead the way, backed by supple black cherry, roasted plum and dark currant notes. Flashes of game and roasted herb flitter in on the lightly roasted finish. Drink now through 2017. 22,000 cases made.
