Description/ Tasting NotesSomewhat closed on the nose. First impression on the palate is fairly round, floral and flattering, then becoming tighter and denser. Fairly long finish with a hint of bitterness.
Winery Info/ Brand
Since the acquisition by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) from the Castéja family in 1962, the vineyards had gone through an overhaul and the chais renovated. Added to the finishing touch was the 40-year effort that reclaimed the Médoc 4th growth wine ranking for its Château Duhart-Milon.
Region Info/ Origin
Pauillac is home to several of the world's most famous wine and the region lies in an inauspicious small village in Médoc. Pauillac sprawls over the land size of about 8.8 square miles, is highly optimised for wine production and accounts for a rather disproportionate amount of fine, expensive wine in Bordeaux.
