This blockbuster was a sleeper of the vintage long before the Rothschilds invested so heavily in modernizing this estate as well as began making a stricter selection. Close to full maturity the 1982 Duhart Milon exhibits classic notes of creme de cassis cedar and flowers medium to full body a high level of glycerin and a lusciousness and fleshiness that are very much in keeping with the vintage. There is a slight amount of pink at the rim but this beauty should keep for another ten years. Release price:

It has a vivacious, mineral-rich bouquet with cedar, pencil shavings and antique bureau aromas. It is like inhaling the scent of a stately home as you walk through it on a Sunday afternoon. The palate is encased by fine tannins that translate the quality of the terroir. There is more leafiness than I recall on previous bottles but it retains superb focus and has the ideal dryness on the finish to encourage you to take another sip. There is good backbone and solidity to this Duhart-Milon and it should drink well over the next decade.

Soft lush and plummy in the mouth with lovely restrained sweetness and firm supporting acidity. Not hugely dense but vinous and impressively persistent. An excellent showing.
