Reviews

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. ~94-95JS

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. ~91-93 WA

The 2019 Dauzac is a potent, inky wine. Crème de cassis, chocolate, espresso, licorice and sweet oak come together in a jammy wine that is a bit disjointed at this stage. The bouquet is a bit diffuse, while the 66% new oak is quite evident. Readers will find a flamboyant Margaux. Even with those caveats, I get the impression there is quite a bit of potential. ~90-92VM
