Duhart Milon Pauillac 1996
30 Apr 2020
Coming from Barons de Rothschild, sometimes being called a baby Lafite (this name was more suited for Carraudes de Lafite), they shared the same winemaker. 1996 was a great Pauillac vintage, it so frequently blew all other Bordeaux appellations off the table from the same vintage, thus I do have high expectations. However, I was mildly disappointed as apart from the addictive bouquet of very Pauillac style of elegant smoke, pencil lead shavings and dark berries, the content was not up to my expectation. Moderate length with jammed packed berries, it just lacked the sophisticated chunky and lengthy fruits compared to other Pauillac 1996.
