"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 is a structured wine that still has serious layers of ripe fruit and rich tannins. The black currant from the Cabernet Sauvignon is balanced by the jammy richness of the delicious Merlot. It's an impressive wine that continues the progress of this estate, owned by Lafite-Rothschild. Drink from 2024. -RV"

"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."
"Chateau Duhart-Milon's grand vin is often described as a model of the Pauillac appellation. The broker Guillaume Lawton noted as early as 1815 that "it is very robust, with a fine colour, and quite pronounced sappiness" (he describes the "sappiness" of the Medoc's premiers crus as "something like the odour given off by finest sealing wax when it is burned").
A delicate wine, the initially supple tannins gradually become more powerful. Well-structured on the palate with good density. Precise, fairly full-bodied finish.
Beautiful dark red colour. The nose is reserved, but already has good depth and complexity. The wood is well integrated under the characteristic notes of fresh red fruit, dominated by blackcurrants. On the palate, the attack is robust and dense, with the wine developing lots of volume. The fruit maintains a good presence. The overall impression is already very well balanced. Good length: the wine confirms its elegant, fresh style. The tannins, although still young, are silky. This wine should open up in four to five years, and reach its peak between 2020 and 2030." - Winery
