" 2002 / 03 Chateau Duhart Milon MOULIN de DUHART Pauillac Description: Owner of Chateau Lafite Rothschild for five generations, the Rothschild family has been based in this Bordeaux vineyard since 1868. High values and the respect of traditional methods make them passionate about harmony and excellence. Their wines bear witness to that passion year after year and their skills have patiently enriched the wines through the generations, with world-renowned success. Domain Baron de Rothschild skills have served other exceptional Bordeaux wines and vineyards, which share the same values of humility and high standards. Over the years, Domain Baron de Rothschild has expanded its offerings through the acquisition of Chateau Duhart-Milon, 4th growth wine from Pauillac, of Chateau Rieussec, 1er growth Sauternes wines, of Chateau l'Evangile in Pomerol, of Château Paradis Casseuil in Entre-Deux-Mers and of Château Peyre-Lebade, Bordeaux wines in Haut Medoc. Recently, Domain Baron de Rothschild in 1999 purchased Chateau d'Aussieres. Moulin de Hart is Chateau Duhart-Milon's second wine, and it is selected from vats of the 'Grand Vin'. The origin of the name comes from the former presence of a windmill on the Carruades, next to the Duhart-Milon vineyard. In general, the grapes are selected from the youngest part of the vineyard. Moulin de Duhart has several characteristics similar to the fine wine, but with a lesser potential for ageing as its ageing in barrels is much shorter. Therefore it best consumed younger than its more robust counterpart. This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon 55 to 60% and Merlot 40 to 45%, spending 10 months in two year old oak barrels and that has produced a powerful and fruity wine. The structure is deep with firm tannins while it has great persistency with a lot of elegance. (6 x 75 cl) "
