Wine Advocate 91 points - Another sleeper of the vintage for this property that has been doing impressive work over recent vintages, the 2004 (a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot) displays a dark ruby/purple color along with classic aromas of cedar, creme de cassis, earth, spice, and wood. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, long, and impressively endowed, it should be at its peak between 2010-2022. (Jun 2007)
A historic property in the Médoc region of France, Château Duhart-Milon is named for the Sieur of Duhart, a gunrunner to Louis XIV who once owned the land, and for the tiny hamlet of Milon, which stands on a knoll separating this vineyard from that of Château Lafite. Classified as a Fourth Growth estate, the Château was acquired in 1962 by the Rothschild family, which has devoted considerable resources to returning the wine to its former glory.
