Chateau Duhart Milon

According to a document from 1815, it belonged to a Mandavy family. Between 1830 and 1840, the Castéja family. Boire-Manoux inherited the estate from the widow Duhart and named it Duhart-Milon. According to the Castéja family tradition, the lord of the manor, Duhart, was a former pirate of King Louis XV (1710-1774) who retired in Pauillac. The "pirate's house" in the port of Pauillac stood until the 1950s and inspired the Duhart-Milon label. In the 1855 Bordeaux classification, the estate was awarded fourth place (Quatrième Cru Classé).

The winery remained in the family until 1937. The devastating frost of 1956 took destroyed the vineyard. In 1964 the dilapidated estate was purchased by "Domaines Barons de Rothschild" with Chateau Lafite-Rothschild also belongs to this company of the French branch of the Rothschild family.

‘It would have been nonsense not to acquire such a great neighbouring vineyard.’ Baron Eric de Rothschild
