The Story

Château Dauzac’s identity is first and foremost that of its contiguous terroir, characterized by a unique soil type and a dominant proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon.

This great wine shows a nicely complex bouquet, which is slowly revealed when aerated. The balance between the richness of the tannins and the aromatic amplitude of the fruit, with a nicely round and supple attack, makes it an archetype of great vins de garde.

The complexity, elegance and minerality of the Cabernet Sauvignon is predominant, complemented by the Merlot, which brings roundness and a smooth texture. A deep red color, Château Dauzac reveals a subtle balance between fruity, flowery and spicy notes and a complex, fleshy mouthfeel; the tannins create great emotion during tasting.

The nose reveals notes of ripe berries, flowers and soft spices. To the mouth, we discover the ample and powerful tannic structure of Château Dauzac, and its strong body. Perfectly balanced, this wine has great potential as a vin de garde. Over the years, it will develop aromatic complexity and incredibly delicate flavors, which are the hallmark of a Grand Cru with character.
