- 2018 Château Duhart-MilonPauillac4ième Grand Cru Classé 0.75l RedPrimeur€78.65 €65.00Eric Koehler, winemaker at Lafite, says that Duhart is so great because of the quality of the Merlot this year that matured perfectly in the late, clay soils. Made from a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot grapes this is a stunning wine for which we are delighted to have an allocation for the first time. It has a very intense black purple colour; a wonderful nose of cassis, summer flowers, herbs, coffee and minerals; on the palate it is firmly textured but fresh with lovely silky tannins and the power comes out in the finish which is spicy, rich and lingering. So classy. Delivery from winter 2020-2021
- PauillacPremier Cru Supérieur 0.75l RedNewPrimeur€683.65 €565.00THE wine of the vintage! To begin with the wine starts out quite classically. It has a dark purple colour and a fresh, dry, intense nose of cassis, herbs and spices. Then the wine begins to build. You notice the purity, the intense precision of the berried fruit; then come the spices and the layers of cedar and liquorice. It is on the palate that you first realise that you are in the presence of a truly great wine: it is silky and harmonious; the tannins are there but melt into the wine; the persistence is incredible and the wine so elegant. It is when you are looking at the finish that the Lafite character comes back, almost as an echo with greater structure and power to remind you that this a great estate, barely touched by the heat and drought of 2018. A deeply compelling wine.
