Château Duhart-Milon, Pauillac 4CC
Decanter average score: 17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: SB 18 AG 17.5 SS 17
Enticing nose of ripe hedgerow fruits. Svelte, concentrated, with robust tannins to balance the sweetness of fruit, plus graphite and liquorice. Structure is disguised but it’s clearly there. Potentially very fine.
Price £74–£135 Widely available at leading Bordeaux merchants
Judges: Steven Brook, Alun Griffiths MW and Steven Spurrier
