2015 Dauzac, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)
This is tight and structured with beautiful blackberry and blueberry character. Full and intense. Very long and attractive. Energetic. Superb.
Barrel Sample. This is a powerful wine, dominated by dusty tannins that bring a dry core to the solid structure. With fine acidity and a solid fruit core, the wine will develop nicely. (RV)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Dauzac is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot, the highest percentage of the former in recent years, and matured in 60% new oak barrels. It has a tightly wound but precise bouquet with scents of blackberry cassis and a hint of violet - very polished and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, pure black fruit laced with graphite and spice, gently building in the mouth, finishing with a precise and quite sustained, Pauillac-inspired grace. This is an excellent wine from the estate that will give 20-25 years of drinking pleasure. (NM)
The 2015 Dauzac offers terrific immediacy and plenty of up-front appeal. Black cherry, tobacco, mocha, new oak, spice, leather and grilled herbs give the Dauzac lovely shades of darkness and overall complexity. (AG)
