Decanter - Fine, firm 73% Cabernet fruit with a brambly middle ripeness from 27% Merlot. Shows polish, depth and a restrained elegance – a firm, classy wine with a fine future. 92 Points

Wine Enthusiast - Barrel Sample. There are plenty of firm tannins here, although this wine succeeds because of the intense acidity and classic black currant flavors. It is already a delicious wine with its fine acidity and lively aftertaste. 93-95 Points

Ratings
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The 2015 Duhart Milon is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot picked between September 23 and October 6, the September 17-23 respectively. It will eventually see 40% new oak during its élevage. It has a tightly-wound bouquet with blackberry, bilberry and cassis fruit, moderate complexity, perhaps just a little static at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with quite supple tannin for the normally obdurate Duhart-Milon, the acidity nicely judged with a pleasing salinity towards the finish....this is a fine Duhart-Milon that is more compromising than the tannic "beasts" of yesteryear, and it should drink after 5-7 years in bottle. 90 - 92 Points
Awards
James Suckling- A firm and silky red with blackberry and chocolate character. Hints of walnut. Full and chewy. Fresh finish. 91-92 Points
Production Notes
Cabernet Sauvignon is supplemented with 33% Merlot, a sizeable proportion of the Médoc, where the flexibility characteristic of this wine. Classic, elegant, with beautiful notes of cedar, Duhart Milon offers a great aging potential.
Other Notes
The Château Duhart Milon never ceases to rise to the top of the great Bordeaux with its neighbor model for Château Lafite Rothschild , the same owner - the Rothschild family - since 1963. It is now represented by Eric Rothschild, assisted by Charles Chevallier as director of both properties, with Eric Kohler technical direction. These shall in particular ensure a strict control of yields. The 76 hectares of this fourth Cru are located on a beautiful gravelly and sandy plateau with limestone base. The vinification is followed by the winemaker Eric Boissenot.
