Dark in color, almost black, with beautiful aromas of spices, blackberry and milk chocolate. Full-bodied and very silky, yet tannic, with a wonderful texture. This is long and caressing. Gorgeous. Best after 2015. 20,000... Dark in color, almost black, with beautiful aromas of spices, blackberry and milk chocolate. Full-bodied and very silky, yet tannic, with a wonderful texture.

This property, which has benefitted enormously from tremendous investments from the Rothschild family that owns Lafite, has turned out a dense purple-colored wine in 2005. Offering broad, expansive, supple and silky tannin as well as loads of Asian plum sauce, blackcurrants, and sweet cherries, this wine is seductive, medium to full-bodied, and luscious. This successful effort from the Rothschilds should continue to drink well for at least another two decades. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

91+ Medium ruby. Superripe aromas and flavors of blueberry, blackberry, bitter chocolate, licorice, menthol and Asian spices. Big, chocolatey and rich; much broader and more backward than the Carruades I tasted next to it... 91+ Medium ruby. Superripe aromas and flavors of blueberry, blackberry, bitter chocolate, licorice, menthol and Asian spices. Big, chocolatey and rich; much broader and more backward than the Carruades I tasted next to it but without that wine's perfume and light touch. Finishes chewy and youthfully medicinal, with a classic dryness and substantial tannins that call for seven or eight years of cellaring.

The Château Duhart-Milon 2005 has a very classic bouquet: blackcurrant, wild strawberry, tobacco and clove all very well defined and intense, though it does not quite possess the precision or penetration of the Grand Puy... The Château Duhart-Milon 2005 has a very classic bouquet: blackcurrant, wild strawberry, tobacco and clove all very well defined and intense, though it does not quite possess the precision or penetration of the Grand Puy Lacoste. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This feels so harmonious in the mouth, the acidity beautifully judged with hints of rosemary and clove on the finish. This is just beginning to open albeit at its own steady pace, but as usual, it needs time.

Initially, it seems somewhat foursquare, with sharp corners, but that is from its youth, and with the black plum fruit flavors, there is plenty of ripeness and balance to come yet.

Spicy raspberry over new oak on the nose. Elegant notes of black currant and hint of lavender. Chalky on the palate with firm green tannins. Better buy for the money than the Lafite.
