"A magnificent sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Duhart Milon is the shrewd consumer's wine to purchase by the case as prices do not yet reflect its qualitative resurgence. Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot that came in at 13.09% alcohol, it is a surprisingly intense effort displaying a marvelous texture, plenty of black currant, licorice, unsmoked cigar tobacco and earthy characteristics, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning purity as well as density. Enjoy this top-notch 2008 over the next 20-25 years." -Robert Parker (94 points)

"A magnificent sleeper of the vintage"

So you love the complexity and depth that aged Bordeaux offers, but are short on space to start a collection? Then this perfectly-stored bottling by Duhart Milon is the answer to your wine-loving dreams. Initially overlooked during en primeur, this offering by Château Lafite Rothschild has evolved into a great Pauillac. Robert Parker gives it a ringing endorsement saying, “A magnificent sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Duhart Milon is the shrewd consumer’s wine to purchase by the case.” Comprised of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot, it has now entered its optimal drinking window – that’s when a chorus between the fruit, acidity and tannins comes together in absolute harmony. Those looking for a big-fruited blockbuster won’t find it in this vintage. The 2008’s are closer to the classic claret style, meaning the wines are light and fresh, with a good amount of acidity and loads of character from bottle ageing. In short, this is a Bordeaux for those who enjoy the time-honored style from cooler vintages. Aged to perfection, stored optimally and at a great price – who can argue with that?
