Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

($70-$75) Medium ruby. Superripe aromas and flavors of blueberry, blackberry, bitter chocolate, licorice, menthol and Asian spices. Big, chocolatey and rich; much broader and more backward than the Carruades I tasted next to it but without that wine's perfume and light touch. Finishes chewy and youthfully medicinal, with a classic dryness and substantial tannins that call for seven or eight years of cellaring.

Very dark blackish crimson. Quite evolved on the nose. Sweet. Very opulent and gorgeous. Big and bold and utterly seductive. Just very slightly short but there is not a jot to complain about!

The finest Duhart-Milon ever made? This structured, tannic, dense ruby/purple-tinged Pauillac offers up hints of cassis, licorice, chocolate, and earth. Medium to full-bodied with good purity, strong tannins, and undeniable elegance, it reveals a character not dissimilar from its renowned sibling, Lafite-Rothschild. A blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Merlot, it is unquestionably outstanding, but to my taste, slightly less opulent than the estate's ethereal 2003.

Dark in color, almost black, with beautiful aromas of spices, blackberry and milk chocolate. Full-bodied and very silky, yet tannic, with a wonderful texture. This is long and caressing. Gorgeous. 20,000 cases made.

This wine is in prime form right now. I don't like older wines. The tannins have settled nicely and are very smooth. The wine still has good fruit, currants, fruitcake, plums and blackberries. The best thing is the cinnamon on the finish. It's a shame that I will never be able to buy this wine at the price I paid a few years ago.

I thought the wine was a bit flat and the tannins a bit too strong. This is a wine that needs to age a few more years at least. Could taste the potential of this 2005, but if you have some of this, don't open it for a couple years

Dark red color with brown hue. Nice nose of graphite, dirt and dark fruits. Wonderful smooth texture and weight on palate. Lots of nice fruit as well. Medium length finish fell a bit short. Soft tannin, easy drinking.
