A classic Pauillac the opaque purple-colored 2010 a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot reveals beautiful notes of creme de cassis licorice tobacco leaf and forest floor. Bigger and more muscular than most previous vintages this full-bodied Pauillac possesses stunning density as well as intensity. Atypically high in alcohol for this property it requires 5-7 years of cellaring and should age effortlessly for 25-30 years.

This plump red offers black tea warm ganache fig and black currant confiture notes backed by a smoky finish with pillowy but lengthy tannins. Acidity then rushes in at the very end adding more length. An impressive step... This plump red offers black tea warm ganache fig and black currant confiture notes backed by a smoky finish with pillowy but lengthy tannins. Acidity then rushes in at the very end adding more length. An impressive step up for this wine. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot (which is also similar to what the property used in 2005) the wine opens with sweet oak truffle cassis and tobacco notes. This medium/full bodied cassis filled wine has ripe tannins... 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot (which is also similar to what the property used in 2005) the wine opens with sweet oak truffle cassis and tobacco notes. This medium/full bodied cassis filled wine has ripe tannins and a long polished black fruit filled finish.

A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon (slightly less than 2009) and 27% Merlot cropped between 24th September and 12th October the Duhart has a well-defined classic Cabernet bouquet with blackberry smoke and a touch of cigar... A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon (slightly less than 2009) and 27% Merlot cropped between 24th September and 12th October the Duhart has a well-defined classic Cabernet bouquet with blackberry smoke and a touch of cigar box. Quite Zen-like and introspective in a way but very fine delineation and class. The palate is very well balanced with very ripe Cabernet fruit just a touch of spice and dried herbs coming through very Duhart very Pauillac in style with a slightly austere Pauillac finish that I really appreciate. I probably prefer this to the 2009. Excellent. Drink 2017-2030+

Pure Cabernet with currants violets and minerals on then nose. Full and polished with ultra-refined tannins and a wonderful intensity of spices and sweet tobacco.

73% cabernet sauvignon 27% merlot. The merlot harvest began in September and ended October 4th while cabernet was harvested October 1 through 12th. A bit muted on the nose but dark chocolate coffee and spicy black pepper... 73% cabernet sauvignon 27% merlot. The merlot harvest began in September and ended October 4th while cabernet was harvested October 1 through 12th. A bit muted on the nose but dark chocolate coffee and spicy black pepper prevail with some swirling. On the palate flavors of red raspberry and mocha are balanced by a chalky minerality and zippy acidity. Less lushness here than Carruades but more precision. This wine already tastes great but will continue to improve over the next 12-15 years.
