La Chaux is a Cerebral ice bath. A beautiful complex thinker.
Sniff this thing. Goes deep. Reminds you that there are three dimensions, four dimensions, maybe other dimensions?
Spiritually oxidized, but also bright and yellow in its Chardonnay birth suit.
Smells like candied lemondrop, sweet basil, and volatile Vietnamese cinnamon. Tastes like browned apples and sour starfruit. — 3 years ago

The 2005 Duhart-Milon is a bit of a beast. Displays quite a dense, unforgiving pencil lead and tobacco-scented nose, and the fruit seems to take a back seat at the moment. The palate is well-balanced but undeniably brawny and rough-hewn, the kind of Pauillac you wouldn't want to meet down a dark alley at midnight. This is a bit hard going at the moment. This was an ex-château bottle served at Maison François in London. (Neal Martin, Vinous, January 2023) — 10 months ago
