"The 2020 Château Duhart-Milon is a much more concentrated, serious wine. Based on 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot hitting 12.5% natural alcohol, with a pH of 3.91, its deep ruby/plum color is followed by medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of darker currants, cherries, damp earth, ripe tobacco, and graphite. Beautifully balanced, elegant, and straight-up seamless, it shows the classic, focused style of the vintage and will be a modern day classic from this terroir."

"The 2020 Duhart-Milon, the maiden vintage crafted in the new cellar, has a glorious,
unashamedly seductive bouquet with pure blackberry, pressed violet and light vanilla pod
aromas that are beautifully defined. You know, this could dupe you into thinking it came
from the Right Bank! The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannins and here we
revert back to the Left Bank thanks to its prominent graphite seam. Finely balanced,
quite silky smooth towards the finish, this is an excellent Pauillac that punches above my
expectations in barrel."
— Neal Martin
"The 2020 Duhart-Milon is a powerful wine, with Cabernet Sauvignon driving the blends
with tons of savory and earthy character. Dark cherry, dried herbs, scorched earth,
tobacco, licorice and menthol are all laced together. This virile, somber Pauillac needs
time in bottle to blossom. I won't be surprised if it is even better in another few years'
time. This opens beautifully with time."
