    The 2022 Duhart-Milon underwent a short 15- to 18-day maceration and is raised in 50% new oak and the rest one-year-old barrels. It has a very graphite/mint-scented nose that is Pauillac through and through. The palate is fresh and vibrant with fine tannins. This is beautifully sculpted with a vibrant pencil lead-tinged finish reminiscent of Grand Puy Lacoste. The 2022 is a fabulous Duhart-Milon that should give 30 to 40 years of drinking pleasure. It's a Pauillac a bit like the late Steven Spurrier insofar that it's a Pauillac always conservatively dressed in a pin-striped suit, but that's the essence of Duhart. Drink 2030-2060

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 91-93

    The 2022 Duhart-Milon unwinds in the glass with aromas of dark berries, cedar box, loamy soil, herbs and spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety palate with a broad attack that segues into a lively, nicely concentrated core of fruit, concluding with a youthfully firm finish.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    The 2022 Duhart-Milon is racy and explosive right out of the gate. Ripe dark cherry, plum, cloves, licorice, menthol and mocha fill out the layers in a deep, wonderfully expressive Duhart. Firm tannins extend the finish nicely. I imagine the 2022 will require at least a few years in bottle to be at its best, but it is pretty showy today. The blend is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot. Drink 2027-2042.

  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    A very strong, Cabernet focused wine with 78% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. Saskia de Rothschild said that at blending they were all taken aback by the variety’s quality, in both richness and fruit flavour. Direct dark cassis, fig and Pauillac graphite fragrance. The depth of fruit completely fills the mouth, full and rich, with an intense central tannic core. Very long with quite some attitude, it was appropriately named as the “Rebellious Uncle” by the Lafite team!

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 95-96

    Very Pauillac in its blackcurrant, dark chocolate and walnut husk character. Full-bodied yet compacted. Wet earth, mushroom, earth, black tobacco. Fine and intense tannins. Fresh and complex. 78% cabernet sauvignon and 22% merlot.

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 94

    Intense, stately, with ripe and spicy dark brambled fruit flavours, blackberry and cassis, balanced by grippy tannins, crushed rocks, slate and cigar, which add texture and moderation. The serious face of Duhart does well in the vintage, keeping an upright tannic backbone. New cellar at Duhart since 2020. Harvest August 31 to September 28, 3.8ph. Olivier Bonnau technical director. Duhart Milon vineyard is looking at lowering density of planting to guard against future hot vintages of this type.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 94-96+

    The Grand Vin 2022 Château Duhart-Milon is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot. It brings more richness as well as classic Pauillac character in its lead pencil, graphite, tobacco, and red and black fruit-driven aromatics. With gorgeous richness, a medium to full bodied mouthfeel, and a great finish, this utterly classic, seamless, balanced Pauillac should be snatched up by readers. It's going to give the 2009 a run for its money.

  • LPB, April 2023, Score: 90-92

    Made from 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot, the 2022 Duhart-Milon is deep garnet-purple in color. It rocks up with ready-to-impress notes of warm cassis, blackberry preserves, and menthol, followed by hints of cinnamon stick, rose oil, and fallen leaves. The medium-bodied palate is chock full of lively black berry and minty flavors, framed by grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and lifted.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 17.5+

    Château Duhart-Milon (4ème Cru Pauillac) 78 Cabernet Sauvignon, 22 Merlot 50% new oak and some amphorae, too 13.7% alc Harvest dates were 31 August – 28 September 15% press wine Dryer and more closed than Carruades de Lafite, from the same portfolio, intense cassis fruit here is delivered as a square and somewhat abrupt package, foreshortening the finish. Once the initial burst of Cabernet subsides (I cannot sense any Merlot here, because the Cabernet fruit is so dominant), a halo of tannin and acidity rolls on quietly, vital to this Duhart’s future. This will be a long-lived vintage given the quality of the tannins, which are beautifully refined, and there is more than enough intensity of fruit in the tank to go a long way.


Château Duhart-Milon

Owned since 1962 by the Rothschilds of Château Lafite, this wine is often overlooked. Yet it usually comes through with impressive results, its style replicating its more renowned big brother with outstanding purity and finesse.



Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
