The 2001 Duhart-Milon has a fresh, quite perfumed and floral bouquet of vibrant red and black fruit mixed with mint and pressed iris. There’s lovely focus here, and it’s less sauvage than the 2000. The palate is medium-bodied, cohesive and focused, with supple tannins and fine acidity. This gently builds toward a lightly spiced, finely proportioned finish of great class and sophistication. Excellent.

Dark red. Wild, diffuse aromas. Thick and chewy and sweet. Satisfying, lively mouthful but pretty evolved. Quite racy but long. Well done!
