    June 2, 2019 - Bottle in excellent condition with bottom neck fill and a only half way soaked cork. Slow ox'ed for one hour. Garnet with slight browning towards the rim. Slightly corked but still drinkable. Light to medium body. Plenty of sous bois. Some dark fruit. Have had quite a number of inexpensive 82 Bordeaux in the last few years, and most of them still showing very well (Louviere, Phelan Segur, Potensac), for this Duhart there seemed to be a good underlying wine but in terms of complexity or concentration nothing that would justify the premium. Around 89-90 for this bottle if one looks past the cork issue. Drink up

    February 15, 2019 - Nose: Beautiful cassis, blackberry, black cherry preserve, tobacco and sweet floral aromas just roll off this in waves. Palate: Has developed well in the bottle with a silky fine palate of cassis, blackberry, graphite, leather and cedary tobacco notes. Perhaps not a pronounced as the nose would suggest but this is in great shape on the palate. Finish: Not super complete in the finish, but dried black fruits, cedar and leather are prominent. Hint of acetone from time to time.

    A really nice bottle, and makes me hopeful for what modern classics from Duhart like 05, 09, 10 and 15 might do in the cellar.

    January 28, 2019 - Opened 6 of these and 4 were very good, full of blackcurrant, pencil, and leather (92). The other 2 were marred by tomato vine notes and struggled to break 85 points. Not in need of much air; safe - and perhaps advisable - to pop and pour.

    January 25, 2019 - Last bottle from an original case. Was concerned it might be past its peak but enjoyed it tremendously. Color slightly faded but still holds up extremely well.

    (Chateau Duhart-Milon Pauillac) A dark, mahogany coloured wine cut through with a tinge of red. Very mature on the nose, with floral and spice elements. Nicely rounded but firm texture is apparent on entry, with soft integrated tannins. Meaty, tobacco and sweet fruit flavours, with spicy acidity and a clean finish. Ready.
