Description

Blend: 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot I remember how delicious this was at en primeur, and it remains a stately, elongated, perfectly poised Pauillac. It’s austere, certainly, but is also full of rich fruit pared down by a slate texture, the sense of minerality scraping along the palate as you approach the blackcurrant leaf and tobacco finish. It’s excellent quality, and clearly a vintage that suits the personality of Duhart – juicy but restrained. Matured in 50% new oak. Enticing aromas of crushed berries, blackcurrants, sweet tobacco, hot stones and licorice follow through to a full body, chewy and dusty tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A juicy and savory young 2016. Try after 2024. Ranking with the finest vintages of this wine to date, the 2016 Ch teau Duhart Milon shows how successful the M doc was in 2016. About as pure class as it gets, with full-bodied notes of red and black currants, tobacco leaf, graphite, and leafy herbs, this beauty hits the palate with sweet tannins, a stacked mid-palate, and a layered, deep, powerful texture. It’s about as sexy as Pauillac can be and has 2-3 decades ahead of it.
