The 1990 has turned out better than I expected. It offers a classic Lafite perfume of graphite/lead pencil shavings interwoven with red and black currants, fresh porcini mushrooms, smoke, and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied, soft, and elegant, it is not as concentrated as the 1982, but is a luscious, round Pauillac to enjoy over the next 5-10 years.
Classified 4th growth in 1855. The fine wine from Château Duhart-Milon is often described as a classic version of the Pauillac appellation. It has a distinguished and reserved character. The courtier Abraham Lawton noted as early as 1815 that "it has firm taste, a fine colour, and a pronounced sap".This strong personality of Château Duhart-Milon remains accurate today Vinified by the team of Lafite Rothschild. Duhart Milon raised its concentration and its savours in mouth. Since the harvest of the 2003 vintage, the domaine has its own team of vintagers. The vat room and cellars were extended and totally renovated in 2003.
