Wine Spectator Review:
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. Score range 92-95.
Wine Advocate Review:
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 M. Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. 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. Tasted January 2014. Neal Martin, Wine Journal
