Duhart-Milon-Pauillac-2013

Duhart Milon, (Pauillac), 2013

The 2013 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, a blend of 20% Merlot and 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, has a simple bouquet for Duhart, though one that is not unpleasurable with muted scents of red plum and boysenberry fruit. Perhaps what the challenging growing season did was denude this Pauillac of terroir expression since I found little of that trademark pencil lead aroma. The palate is medium-bodied and quite rounded in the mouth, slightly lower in acidity than I was expecting, but cohesive with black fruit tinged with cedar and leather. It is a forward Duhart-Milon with moderate depth but decent length. It might be the earliest drinking and most approachable Duhart that I have encountered, but it still has drinking pleasure to offer.
