Winemaker Notes

Dedicated to the expression of terroir and dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, Château Dauzac reveals a nicely complex bouquet that slowly unfolds during aeration. On the palate, it strikes a subtle balance between the richness of its tannins and the aromatic diversity of its supple fruits, emblematic of great wines for ageing.

Cabernet Sauvignon dominates with its complexity, elegance and minerality, while Merlot adds roundness and silkiness. Always deep in color, Château Dauzac expresses a subtle balance where fruits, flowers and spices are combined, with a complex body and tannins ensuring an emotional tasting experience.

Blend: 57% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

JS 96
James Suckling
Firm and structured with medium body and beautiful dark and blue fruit underneath. Tannins are fine-grained and linear, with some chalky minerality to it. It is seamless and delicate, very attractive and fresh. Long.
Barrel Sample: 95-96
V 94
The 2022 Dauzac, aged 75% in new oak and 5% amphora, takes time to settle in the glass. In fact, I'd allow it 10-15 minutes of aeration. It eventually offers attractive blackberry and sea spray/estuarine scents, as if a bit of the Gironde fell into the glass. Nothing wrong with that! The palate is medium-bodied with granular tannins and tensile black fruit laced with graphite. It tails off a little toward the finish. Nevertheless, this is a very admirable Margaux in the making. With five to seven years in bottle, it will be doling out a lot of pleasure.–Neal Martin

JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck
The deep purple/plum-hued 2022 Château Dauzac is another medium to full-bodied, balanced, elegant Margaux in the vintage that has some smoky background oak, classy notes of darker blue fruits, violets, and chocolate, ripe yet present tannins, and outstanding length. The balance is spot-on here, and it's going to have a lengthy, broad drink window.
Barrel Sample: 91-93
D 92
So perfumed and fragrant on the nose, tart and vibrant, really quite intensely fruit with high acidity gives this an electric sense on the palate. Buzzy and tangy, red fruits, strawberries and red cherries with chalky, powdery and flint=laced tannins that coat the mouth gently giving tannic weight and texture. Well made with definition and freshness - a cool mint touch on the finish. Remains quite straight and serious, a touch austere to begin with then settles. Energy and brightness here, there’s tension and freshness which is great. Sharp and well defined.

Chateau Dauzac Winery Image
The vineyards of Chateau Dauzac comprise 40 hectares of AOC Margaux, lying together, planted on deep gravel. The first vineyard on this site can be traced back to the 12th century, though it was not until the arrival of Thomas Michel Lynch in 1740 that the vineyard, which figures in the 1855 classification, existed as we know it today.

It was here at Dauzac, in 1885, that Ernest David, then estate manager of both Dauzac and Ducru Beaucaillou, perfected the "Bouillie Bordelaise", thus saving the european vineyard from mildew.
As in the majority of Medoc vineyards, the principal grape-varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Grapes at Dauzac are destemmed and crushed before fermentation in stainless-steel vats equipped with a patented system for breaking up the cap, giving excellent tannic extraction. Wines are matured in oak barrels, the percentage of new oak adapted to the characteristics of each vintage.

Silky, seductive and polished are the words that characterize the best wines from Margaux, the most inland appellation of the Médoc on the Left Bank of Bordeaux.

Margaux’s gravel soils are the thinnest of the Médoc, making them most penetrable by vine roots—some reaching down over 23 feet for water. The best sites are said to be on gentle outcrops, or croupes, where more gravel facilitates good drainage.

The Left Bank of Bordeaux subscribes to an arguably outdated method of classification but it is nonetheless important in regards to history of the area. In 1855 the finest chateaux were deemed on the basis of reputation and trading price—at that time. In 1855, Chateau Margaux achieved first growth status, yet it has been Chateau Palmer (officially third growth from the 1855 classification) that has consistently outperformed others throughout the 20th century.

Chateau Margaux in top vintages is capable of producing red Cabernet Sauvignon based wines described as pure, intense, spell-binding, refined and profound with flavors and aromas of black currant, violets, roses, orange peel, black tea and incense.

Other top producers worthy of noting include Chateau Rauzan-Ségla, Lascombes, Brane-Cantenac, and d’Issan, among others.

The best wines of Margaux combine a deep ruby color with a polished structure, concentration and an unrivaled elegance.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
