The time footprint at Duhart-Milon, the only 4th GCC of Pauillac

Château Duhart-Milon lies just next to Château Lafite Rothschild and was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in 1962. ‘It would have been nonsense not to acquire such a great neighbouring vineyard’ declared Baron Eric de Rothschild.

Legend has it that “Sieur Duhart” was a privateer under Louis XV who retired to Pauillac, and it was his house in Pauillac’s port that inspired the label for Duhart Milon’s wines. From the early 18th century, Milon’s wines provided the Lord of Lafite with additional income, and became one of Château Lafite’s “second wines”, suggesting that the quality of the terroir was already recognized. The 1855 classification elevated Duhart Milon’s status by making it the only fourth growth wine in the commune of Pauillac. The 76 hectare vineyard in the Pauillac appellation is divided between Cabernet Sauvignon (67%) and Merlot (33%). It lies to the west of Château Lafite Rothschild, on the hillsides of Milon, which extend from Lafite’s Carruades plateau. An extensive replanting programme was undertaken when the property was bought and the vines are now all mature. The renewed quality in the wines has attracted critical acclaim from international wine critics and wine lovers alike.
