Château Dauzac Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Chateau Dauzac is a Cinquieme Cru Classe (Fifth Growth) from Margaux in Bordeaux. The 45 hectares are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon 52% and Merlot 48%. Today Dauzac resides within the Andre Lurton family of wineries, and the improvements in quality in recent years have been stunning. There is little doubt that the 2005 represented the pinnacle of achievement for this property thus far. Critics have been unimanious in their praise. Decanter magazine rated it Five Stars: "Ripe, rich nose. Serious. Good weight, thick cherry fruit. Lots of it. Sweet and chunky with a long, lingering finish. Quite forward but has depth and weight. Drink from 2015." Robert Parker is also very enthusiastic: "The issue I had with this wine’s rusticity and high tannin level in barrel has been resolved. There is no doubting its serious concentration, dense ruby/purple color, and attractive aromatics (blackberries, cassis, creosote, spring flowers, and licorice). It offers plenty of body and concentration as well as relatively high tannins. While impressively structured and backward, the finish reveals sweet yet powerful tannins. The finest Dauzac ever made, it should be at its peak between 2016-2030". 91 points. Wine Advocate (176), April 2008.
