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

The nose attired by the Duhart Milon 2010 is slightly more decadent than its peers, with hints of fresh prune and fruitcake infusing the black cedar fruit. The oak is nicely integrated but it needs another 3-4 years for the oak to fully integrate. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins on the entry. There is a lovely saline note here, a dash of white pepper and a long, satisfying, quite dense finish. Excellent.

(94+ points) Like a lot of 2010s, the 2010 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild is tight and backward, yet has serious potential. Sporting a deep ruby/purple color and classic notes of currants, lead pencil shavings, cedarwood and saddle leather, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a tight, firm focused texture and beautiful concentration. Its tannins are present, yet ripe and integrated, and it has the purity and freshness that’s the hallmark of this great, great vintage. Give bottles another 2-3 years and it should keep for two to three decades.

Closing up, it took effort to find the cassis, tobacco and olive notes. Medium/full bodied, soft textures and a fresh, cassis and dark red berry filled finish are found in this elegant Pauillac.

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.

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.

(91 points) 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... (91 points) 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. 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.

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.
