Château Duhart-Milon - Pauillac
What are the specificities of Château Duhart-Milon?
The history of the Domaine goes back at least to the end of the Empire under Napoleon.
At that time the property had 110 hectares with only 17 hectares of vines. Between 1970 and 2000, the size of the vineyard was doubled and the Rothschild family undertook renovation and modernisation work on the wine-making facilities as well as the construction of new cellars.
Based on these investments, in 2008 the Château gives birth to a wine of much greater quantity and stature than before.
The 76-hectare vineyard offers a wine tasting of a blend of 2 grape varieties:
- Cabernet Sauvignon 67%
- Merlot 33%
This is a particularity of the estate as it is one of the rare vineyards classified in 1855 to have only 2 grape varieties planted.
The property's vines are located in the north-western part of the Pauillac appellation, benefiting from a terroir of fine gravel mixed with aeolian sands on a relatively chalky soil.
A traditional savoir-faire that gives birth to a long, dense, perfectly balanced and structured wine with assured tannins. The Château Duhart-Milon is a classic of the Pauillac appellation with good ageing potential.
The estate also produces a second wine, the "Moulin de Duhart", created in 1986. A third wine also exists: "le Baron de Milon".
