Duhart Milon, 4ème Cru Classé

"Château Duhart-Milon’s vineyard consists mainly of a single block of vines on the west side of Château Lafite Rothschild, on the Milon hillside, which runs along the Carruades plateau. The property has 76 hectares of vine. The soil is fine gravel mixed with aeolian sand on tertiary limestone subsoil.

The 76 hectares of vines consist of Cabernet Sauvignon (67%) and Merlot (33%). The average age of the vines is 30 years.

The property has been managed since 1962 by a single team that, due to the proximity of the two properties, oversees both Château Lafite Rothschild and Château Duhart-Milon. Eric Kohler, Technical Director of the Château Lafite Rothschild and Château Duhart-Milon, is assisted by Oenologist and Winemaker Christophe Congé, and Vineyard Manager Louis Caillard.

Both Châteaux use the same traditional techniques based on strict control of yields, harvesting by hand, and numerous manual tasks throughout the year. 

Today, the new vines are all mature, and the renovation of the cellar adds a finishing touch to a remarkable 40-year effort that has restored  Château Duhart-Milon to its Médoc 4th growth rank. The promise of the 1990, 1995, 1996 and 2000 vintages has already been confirmed and the renewed quality is expressed in the consistency of the vintages at the highest level. This can be seen in the remarkable potential of all the vintages since 2003. If the best vintages had to be named, then 2005, 2006, 2009 and 2010 were remarkable successes that have received critical acclaim."
