Chateau Dauzac 2019 is a wine that expresses outstanding fruit vibrancy. It is very well-balanced and composed of dense tannins that flaunt rarely-achieved finesse and elegance. Blend:73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% MerlotThe Barrel Sample for this wine is above 14% ABV. This is linear and tight with beautiful concentration of tannins and dark fruit, as well as tar and dark chocolate. Full, yet racy and long. Very solid and structured with tannins that integrate well into the wine. Better than the 2018.Barrel Sample:94-95 Mulberries, tobacco, new leather, redcurrants, spicy herbs, and violets all define the bouquet of the 2019 Ch teau Dauzac, a pretty, medium-bodied, remarkably elegant and seamless Margaux with tons to love. It’s certainly worth seeking out and is going to cruise for 15-20 years. Best after 2022. An estate to watch, with a new owner, Christian Roulleau, who will be overseeing this vintage from beginning to end (still with the same director and technical team). Vibrant violet edge to this ruby red colour. Expressive aromatics even at this early stage, with nuances of peonies and berry fruits, laced with coffee bean, delivered with a raspy slate texture to the tannins that ensure the flavour hangs around. Well structured, plenty to get your teeth into here. Harvest September 17 to October 10, on fruit days only according to the biodynamic calendar. Heavy bottle, a little at odds with the vegan-certified, increasingly biodynamic ethos. Barrel Sample:93
