2008-Chateau Duhart-Milon Rothschild
Grand Cru Classe, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
“Shuh-Toe Dew-Hurr Mee-lon Roet-shield”
This contiguous neighbor of Chateau Lafite Rothschild shares the same owners and winemaking team as its legendary stablemate. The Cabernet dominating blend is quite similar to Lafite as are the classic freshly shaven pencil and cigar box (cedar and tobacco leaf) aromas as well as a plethora of black fruit flavors that fade into a forest floor earthy denouement. Serve with Prime Rib, hearty steak or Beef Stroganoff after at least 1 hour of decanting.
