Domaines Barons de Rothschild Chateau Duhart-Milon 'Moulin de Du

$45.99

Château Duhart-Milon’s second wine is selected from vats of the "Grand Vin". In general, the grapes are from the youngest part of the vineyard. Moulin de Duhart has several characteristics similar to the fine wine, but with a lesser potential for ageing as its ageing in barrels is much shorter. It must be consumed younger than its more robust counterpart. The origin of the name comes from the former presence of a windmill on the Carruades, next to the Duhart-Milon vineyard.
Grape varieties:
Cabernet Sauvignon 55 to 60% and Merlot 40 to 45%.
Length of ageing in oak barrels:
10 months in two year old barrels.
Average annual production:
5 000 to 7 000 cases.

Vintage 2010

Cabernet Sauvignon 51 %, Merlot 49 %

The vineyard cycle began with a cold, relatively wet winter, resulting in a slightly later bud-break than in 2009, in mid-April. Growth was then boosted by dry, sunny weather in April.
May and June were characterized by alternating periods of rain and sunshine. June began with a cold spell that complicated the flowering of the Merlot, resulting in flower abortion and uneven grape size.

Fortunately, July was very dry (less than 20 mm of rain) with relatively high temperatures, which helped the vines to catch up from the delays caused during flowering.
August and September were very dry, with beautiful daytime temperatures and cool nights creating ideal conditions for the grapes to slowly reach optimum ripeness.

Tasting notes (at bottling):

Bouquet of red fruit. A supple wine with plump, silky tannins
