Welcome to Bar Back!
Good color. Deep red. Robust nose, still closed. Notes of fresh fruit, especially Morello cherries. The attack is supple and rounded. A pleasantly energetic wine. Evolves well on the palate. The structure suggests that it will soon open up. Good length, with slightly green but soft tannins.
Château Duhart-Milon’s vineyard consists mainly of a single block of vines on the west side of Château Lafite Rothschild, on the Milon hillside, which runs along the Carruades plateau. The property has 76 hectares of vine. The soil is fine gravel mixed with aeolian sand on tertiary limestone subsoil.
The property has been managed since 1962 by a single team that, due to the proximity of the two properties, oversees both Château Lafite Rothschild and Château Duhart-Milon. Charles Chevallier, Technical Director of the Bordeaux Châteaus, is assisted by Oenologist and Winemaker Christophe Congé, and Vineyard Manager Régis Porfilet.
