2010 Duhart Milon Rothschild 75CL
Classic notes of cedar and lead pencil shavings, black currants and licorice. The wine has a full-bodied mouthfeel with fabulous precision and density. It possesses a long, silky finish with moderately high, but ripe and well-integrated tannins.
In the early 18th century, the Pauillac district began widespread grape cultivation at the urging of the owners of Lafite. The Milon wines served as additional income for Lafite’s master and became Château Lafite’s second wine. So early on, the soil was acknowledged as being of particularly high quality. Lafite’s owner at that time was the Marquis Nicolas-Alexandre de Segur, whom Louis XV referred to as "The Wine Prince".
