Chateau Duhart Milon

Pauillac, Bordeaux

French Wines

Chateau Duhart-Milon, Pauillac, Médoc, BordeauxCHÂTEAU DUHART-MILON
In the early 18th century, Pauillac district began widespread grape cultivation at the urging of the owners of Lafite. The Milon wines served as additional income for Lafite’s master, and became Château Lafite’s second wine. So early on, the soil was acknowledged as being of particularly high quality. Lafite’s owner at that time was the Marquis Nicolas-Alexandre de Ségur, whom Louis XV referred to as “The Wine Prince.” In 1815, the courtier Guillaume Lawton was already talking about Mandavy-Milon from the Milon hills as a fourth growth Pauillac wine in the making. Between 1830 and 1840, the Castéja family was left an inheritance by both Mandavy and the Duhart widow (14 hectares). The family thus possessed a 40-hectare vineyard that was named Duhart-Milon. The oral tradition of the Castéja family presents “Sir Duhart” as a pirate of Louis XV settled at Pauillac for retirement. The “pirate’s house” on the Pauillac port existed up to the 1950’s, and inspired the label for the Duhart-Milon wines. The 1855 classification recognized Duhart-Milon soil’s quality by ranking it as the only 4th growth wine in Pauillac.

The quality of the Château’s wines was also declining until the Rothschild family purchased the property in 1962. Duhart-Milon then included 110 hectares, of which only 17 hectares were vineyards. Major construction projects were then brought into the vineyards: draining, uprooting and replanting, purchase of adjacent plots, and reintegrating the vineyards by trading plots. New chais and tank rooms were installed in Pauillac. The vineyards grew from 42 hectares to 71 hectares between 1973 and 2001. Today, the new vines are all mature, and the renovation of the chais adds a finishing touch to a remarkable 40-year effort that reclaimed the Médoc 4th growth wine ranking for Château Duhart-Milon. The quality now having returned to Château Duhart-Milon vintages such as 1986, 1990, 1995, 1996, 2000 and a few others are extremely promising wines.

Chateau Duhart Milon 1995 magnum  Bordeaux France Chateau Duhart Milon 1995 1.5L Pauillac - Bordeaux FranceRed Wine
Made from a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon/20% Merlot, the 1995 is slightly sweeter, more supple and slender than the broader-shouldered 1996. The wine's bouquet offers aromas of ripe berry fruit intermixed with minerals, toasty oak, and spice. Medium-bodied, with fine extract, it is a finesse-styled Pauillac Rated 87, Robert Parker

The property has been managed by a single team since 1962, which supervises Château Lafite Rothschild and Château Duhart-Milon, since the two properties and vineyards are adjacent. Both Châteaux use the same techniques based on strict mastery of yields, harvesting by hand, and undertaking many manual projects throughout the year. Baron de Milon comes from a selection that takes place during the assemblage, it has the same base than the “Grand Vin”, Château Duhart-Milon. Baron de Milon has several characteristics similar to the fine wine, but its time of ageing in barrels is shorter which means it has lesser potential for ageing. It must be consumed younger than its more robust counterpart.
