About the Wine

Powerful and structured, worthy of aging, a wine that comes from one of the most reputable appellations in the world, listed in the most important wine classification, a wine with high accolades from some of the most important critics in the world, that is our 2016 Chateau Dauzac Margaux!

The story behind Château Dauzac is really intriguing. The Château dates from 1190, when Pétrus d'Auzac inherited these lands from Richard I, King of England. Over the years, the superb wines from Dauzac began to acquire an excellent reputation, becoming one of the favorites of the aristocracy; This led them to be recognized as 5th Growth Grand Cru Classe in the Official Bordeaux Classification of 1855. 

Later in 1924, the Château passed into the hands of the same owners of the 2nd Growth Ducru-Beaucaillou. It was thanks to this family that Château Dauzac adopted the yellow color on its labels,a strong identity that is preserved to this day.

Throughout history, Château Dauzac has passed through different owners, from French businessmen to insurance companies; It is important to note that all of them have achieved important strides within the vineyard, winemaking, and cellar. All these efforts are clearly shown in the result of the outstanding wines that are produced at Château Dauzac to this day. As of 2020, it became the property of the successful French businessman, Christian Roulleau.

The Dauzac vineyard is made up of more than 120 acres, of which 111 have the Margaux appellation and the rest have the Haut-Médoc appellation. The vineyards are mostly made up of Cab Sauvignon, followed by Merlot and Petit Verdot. Château Dauzac has started to implement biodynamic principles, in addition to highly integrated agriculture and organic practices. 

Éric Boissenot is the Rockstar wine consultant behind Chateau Dauzac Margaux. Eric consults at forty of the 1855 Classified estates including Lafite,Margaux, Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Leoville Las Cases, and Ducru Beaucaillou.

Aging: 15 months in 100% French Oak Barrels, 65% new.

Tasting Notes: 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot. The 2016 vintage is extremely rich and precise without being excessive, revealing bright fruit and a dense and complex raw material. The high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend gives it an exceptional acidity/alcohol balance that is an indication of a great vintage. Pair this wine with white meat, poultry, red meat, game, cheese.


The nose is elegant and offers complexity, a certain controlled concentration as well as accuracy in its construction. It has notes of creamy blackcurrant, pulpy wild strawberry and slightly violet, combined with hints of crushed raspberry, as well as fine hints of liquorice, caramelisation, blueberry, tea, a touch of chocolate, blue plum and a discreet touch of vanilla. The palate is fruity and offers minerality, freshness, juiciness, a nice definition, suavity, a certain gourmandise, a fine acidic backbone as well as an airy side in the approach. On the palate this wine expresses crunchy boysenberry, crushed raspberry and more slightly pulpy cherry notes combined with hints of blueberry, fresh/juicy blueberry, delicate hints of racy/gravelly minerality as well as subtle sapid, peppery and sweet blond tobacco hints. A very nice definition of pulpy/crisp/acidic fruit. The tannins are precise and mellow. Good length. Some chewiness on the finish. Good length (13 caudalies). Sincerity, purity and sapidity in this beautiful wine. ~95-96 VerdeVin

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. ~95 James Suckling

Mulberries, tobacco, new leather, redcurrants, spicy herbs, and violets all define the bouquet of the 2019 Château 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. ~94 Jeb Dunnuck

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. ~93 Decanter

Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot, harvested from the 17th of September to the 10th of October, the 2019 Dauzac is aging in French oak barriques, 66% new. It weighs in at 14% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple colored, it soars out of the glass with vibrant notes of warm plums, fresh blackcurrants and redcurrant jelly with nuances of Indian spices, candied violets, dark chocolate and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating black fruits with loads of spicy accents and a firm structure of ripe, grainy tannins, finishing long and refreshing. ~93 Robert Parker

Deep dark ruby ​​garnet, opaque core, violet reflections, delicate edge lightening. Black berry fruit, a hint of liquorice and cassis, delicate nougat, fresh orange zest, tobacco spiciness. Complex, full-bodied, ripe cherries, fine tannins, extract-sweet finish, sticks well, a versatile food accompaniment with potential. ~93 Falstaff

Rich, ripe and forward, with mouthfilling waves of plum sauce and blackberry preserve, joined by anise, singed alder and ganache notes through the finish. Very solid for the vintage. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now. ~92 Wine Spectator
