Dense purple, with classic notes of cedar and lead pencil shavings as well as gobs of back currants and licorice, the wine has a full-bodied mouthfeel with fabulous precision and density. It also possesses a long, silky finish with moderately high tannins, but they are ripe and well-integrated. The wood is clearly pushed to the background in this dense, full-bodied Pauillac, which should drink beautifully for 30+ years. - Robert Parker

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.

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+

Juicy black currant fruit mingles with bright acidity and dark-chocolate tannins. This often overlooked château, with the same production team as Lafite-Rothschild, has an intense and concentrated 2010, balanced superbly... Juicy black currant fruit mingles with bright acidity and dark-chocolate tannins. This often overlooked château, with the same production team as Lafite-Rothschild, has an intense and concentrated 2010, balanced superbly between firmness and fruitiness.

A wine with an intense sous bois, fresh tobacco and dried flower character on the nose and palate. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and an attractive finish. It's structured yet polished with a beauty and stature. Try... A wine with an intense sous bois, fresh tobacco and dried flower character on the nose and palate. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and an attractive finish. It's structured yet polished with a beauty and stature. Try in 2015.

Well-polished, with sleek edges to the fleshy plum, cassis and blackberry fruit, while the finish is embedded with black licorice and violet notes. Approachable now, but the stuffing is there to cellar this for a bit...

Approachable now, but the stuffing is there to cellar this for a bit. Drink now through 2025. – JM

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.
