Reviews of purchase Baron de Milon, Pauillac AOC, 2007
Wine rich ruby color.
Taste wines expressive, with notes of dark fruit and minerals, with light, flexible oak notes.
Wine with a delicate fruity aroma, hints of spice and oak.
The wine goes well with meat dishes, game dishes, mature cheeses, pates and sausages.
Wine "Baron de Milo" - a member of the collection "Great wines." This is a very decent wine. Created by technology mixing different grapes, it differs from its more expensive relative residence time in barrels.
Heavy rains during the winter 2007 joined the groundwater level, and has been featured in the early spring blooming buds. The temperature in March and April was quite high, which affected the good growth of vines. Summer - malosolnechnoe and soft, without extremes. Fortunately, the weather in September was good and allowed the grapes to ripen in calm conditions. However, the vegetative cycle in 2007 lasted longer than usual - full maturation to the desired level of sugar and tannin was reached only after 125 days after flowering. The wine is aged 10 months in oak barrels of two years.
In 1962, the Rothschild family bought the estate Duhart-Milon, consisting of 110 hectares of land, of which only 17 hectares were vineyards. Then the vineyards have been implemented important engineering projects: draining, uprooting and replanting, the purchase of adjacent plots and reintegration vineyards. Were built new cellars and tanks. Today Chateau Douar-Milon has 152 hectares of land, of which 73 hectares are vineyards. The soil is a deep layer of good gravel mixed with sand. All this is on a foundation of limestone.
