2019 Duhart-Milon is released with a 92-94 points from Lisa Perotti-Brown MW in The Wine Advocate. At £620 IB, there are no headline-grabbing price discounts. That said and in our experience, as this wine grows in stature it can also be more challenging to taste from cask. There is no doubt that the influence of the Lafite-Rothschild team is profound and that the wine is increasingly aspiring to a serious, structured style with its blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. A 'sleeper', perhaps? Described by Perotti-Brown as "spritely and refreshing", it will be interesting to see how this develops and to see bottle tasting scores over the next few years.
