From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Château Duhart-Milon, previously also Château Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, is a winery in the Pauillac appellation of the Bordeaux region of France.


As the story goes, "Sieur Duhart" was a corsair who settled in Pauillac. His house inspired the wine's label.[1] During the XVIIth century, under the management of the House of Ségur [fr], the vineyard was used for Château Lafite's second wine. During the 1830s, the land was purchased by the Castéja family. A 110-acre vineyard was created and later renamed Château Duhart-Milon. The Castéja family sold Duhart-Milon in 1937, and five owners managed the château in the following twenty-five years. Château Duhart-Milon was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild in 1962.[2]

The wine produced here was classified as one of ten Quatrièmes Crus Classés (Fourth Growths) in the historic Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.[3]


The Château, adjacent to the Château Lafite Rothschild, has 175 acres (0.71 km2) planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (67%) and Merlot (33%).[4] The Château produces a second wine under the label Moulin de Duhart. It is managed by Eric Kohler since 2015.[5]
