Château Duhart-Milons grand vin is often described as a model of the Pauillac appellation. The broker Guillaume Lawton noted as early as 1815 that it is very robust, with a fine colour, and quite pronounced sappiness (he describes the sappiness of the Médocs premiers crus as something like the odour given off by finest sealing wax when it is burned).

The weather conditions were somewhat unusual this year and required all of our technical teams vigilance and expertise.
Spring and summer changed places: spring was exceptionally hot and dry, resulting in an acceleration of the growth cycle, and then the summer saw less sunshine than usual in July, and a wetter than average August. Finally, just as we were getting ready to harvest, a huge hail storm in the north of Pauillac and Saint Estèphe on 1 September and obliged us to reorganize the schedules. The plots that had been affected had to be picked first; fortunately, as a result of the conditions, the grapes had ripened early, and quality was not compromised.
Tasting notes (at bottling)
Intense colour with hints of purple.
Initially characterized by woodiness, the nose then presents a beautiful expression of red fruit, tobacco and spicy notes. Elegant and fresh on the palate. Fine structure, density and length with a complex fruity finish.
- 73% Cabernet Sauvignon
- 27% Merlot
The vineyard cycle began with a cold, relatively wet winter, resulting in a slightly later bud-break than in 2009, in mid-April. Growth was then boosted by dry, sunny weather in April. May and June were characterized by alternating periods of rain and sunshine. June began with a cold spell that complicated the flowering of the Merlot, resulting in flower abortion and uneven grape size.
Fortunately, July was very dry
