Inky plum, this is packed with cassis and bilberry fruits, serious tannic architecture, tobacco leaf and sandalwood edging, with a wall of black pepper and rosemary spice on the finish. 15.5% press wine used, the most to date. Duhart Milon vineyard is looking at lowering density of planting because it can be extremely dry, so more challenging in these kind of years.
James Suckling 93-94
Such beautiful blackberry, chocolate and hazelnut character here. It’s medium-bodied with juicy fruit and a succulent finish. All here for the second wine. 87% merlot and 13% cabernet sauvignon.
Robert Parker 87-89
Offering up aromas of plum preserve, hoisin sauce, sweet soil tones and spices, the 2022 Moulin de Duhart is medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with powdery tannins and ripe acids, but this sample lacks a touch of precision. It’s a blend dominated by 87% Merlot.
Jeb Dunnuck 91-93
A blend of 87% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2022 Moulin De Duhart has a gorgeous nose of ripe black cherries, tobacco, and earth. It’s medium-bodied, with plenty of richness, fine tannins, and a great finish. It’s going to offer pleasure right out of the gate yet still have 10-15 years of overall longevity.
The Wine Independent 86-88
The 2022 Moulin de Duhart, 87% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, is deep garnet-purple in color. It leaps with notions of black cherries, redcurrant jelly, and plum preserves, followed by suggestions of chocolate mint and pencil lead. The medium-bodied palate is light on its feet and refreshing, with a soft texture and red berry-laced finish.
