- Tasting Notes
The 2014 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild is clearly a level up in quality compared to the Moulin de Duhart this year, with ample blackberry and cedar scents on the nose. As I observed from barrel, it is less austere than previous vintages of Duhart. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, plenty of blackberry laced with tobacco, Chinese five spice and just a faint hint of dark chocolate right on the finish. It should drink well over the next 12-15 years.

The 2014 Duhart-Milon is dark, powerful and sensual, largely because of the high %age of Merlot in this vintage. Black cherry, leather, smoke, licorice and mocha all run through the 2014. Even with all of its obvious up-front fruit, the wine needs time to settle down and shed some tannins. There is plenty here to like, though.

Aromas of blackcurrants and sweet tobacco. Wet earth to boot. Full-bodied, tight and chewy with firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to soften. Try drinking in 2021.

This emphasizes vibrant acidity over tannins, giving this a lively, almost brisk feel to the mix of bitter plum, pomegranate and blood orange flavors. Shows fresh bay and tobacco notes in the background, with good stuffing through the finish. Should put on a little weight in the cellar. Best from 2019 through 2029. 18,000 cases made.
