Duhart Milion 2007 is now priced under pressure. There are huge variations in its itHong Kong prices. One reason is that wine critics have had diverse views about Chateau Duhart Milon 2007. For example, Jancis Robinson writes about early drinking, the easy cassis fruit and elegance, Stephen Tanzers talks about the cool mint nose, supple palate and lack of power. Robert Parker, on the other hand, writes about the successful evolution, yet he is still waiting.
In this chaotic situation, Team recommends that this is the time to buy Chateau Duhart Milon 2007 for cost performance, because Team is truly convinced that the wine will improve.
Team likes Duhart Milon 2007 because:
This Duhart Milon 2007 vintage is cheap as it is charging only a fraction of the price the siblings Carruades de Lafite is getting. This wine is produced by the same team who make Lafite, and they have been on top form in recent vintages under Charles Chevalier, and so hthe wine is as good at least. Why?
Duhart is usually very good value for money on initial release and the 2003, for example, has already doubled in price in three years. So 2007 will evolve and definitely is to fetch a high price.
Duhart Milon 2007 its now better than Carruades de Lafite 2007, and is still available at a much lower price.
This 73.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26.5% Merlot blend (compared to the softer 51% cabernet and 49% mix of Merlot, cabernet franc, and Petit Verdot) has a serious, quite restrained nose with hints of cherries and cassis, yet the power is there. On the palate, there is a touch of vanilla and some lovely, forward, ripe, round fruit. Yet the mineral, sea salt, licorice, tobacco and burnt wax nose create lots of imaginations. The tannins significant and are not at all harsh, and this will be attractive at a relatively early age. This wine will improve.
