The 1996 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild is aging in wonderful fashion, to wit, a straight down the fairway Pauilliac. Now at 20 years of age, it has developed a fresh and very brine-scented bouquet with plenty of undergrowth and bell pepper aromas. You could almost imagine a bit of Loire Cabernet Franc in here! The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry, impressive body and backbone, likewise more than enough freshness on the structured finish laced with white pepper and bell pepper. Very classic in style, this is a Duhart for traditionalists, but I for one appreciate its style. It is drinking perfectly now but will continue to offer pleasure for another 20 years. Tasted July 2016. (NM)
Dark crimson with an evolved rim. Notably aromatic -- top ex-Lafite barrels? Delicate, light bodied but very fragrant and ready to drink. Just a slightly charred note on the end. Bone-dry finish. Tastes almost more like a classic St-Estèphe. (JR)
Some plum and fresh herb character, with hints of cedar and lemon. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish. (JS, Web Only-2007)
