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 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 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+

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... 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.

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. Extremely deep crimson. Sweet pruney start - looks much more intense than Carruades, presumably because of all the Cabernet. Very introvert; not much nose.

Very introvert; not much nose. Juicy, fresh and liquorice - lots of energy. Lots of freshness. Dry finish. Very subtle but with extremely marked tannins. Just a little rugged. But the fruit is wonderfully concentrated. 17+ out of 20

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.
