The release of 2020 Château Duhart Milon this morning is a sure sign that big-brother Lafite Rothschild (costing 5 to 10 times the price) is on its way...
With the vineyards lying adjacent to those of Lafite, albeit with a slightly cooler terroir, Duhart has always been the more affordable way to enjoy a glass of Rothschild greatness. And whilst most critics put the 2020 up there with the best of recent vintages (James Latham for jancisrobinson.com calling it "possibly the best Duhart yet"), Jeb Dunnock ("another classic, concentrated, impressive wine from this team") and James Suckling are unequivocal, both awarding up to 96 points. Unfortunately the château has only released very small volumes into the en primeur system as it is rumoured they want to keep it back for other markets. So if you would like to buy a case, and we recommend you do, order now as it will sell out fast. £340 per six bottles in bond.
