The winery is located in the Pauillac area near the eponymous commune of Milon in the Médoc (Bordeaux). Its immediate neighbours are the two famous estates of Château Lafite-Rothschild and Château Mouton-Rothschild. According to a document from 1815, it belonged to a Mandavy family. Between 1830 and 1840, the Castéja family(Borie-Manoux) inherited the estate and another 14 hectares 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 glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
