2014 Dauzac 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 91 points
Drink by: 2018 - 2032
The bouquet is very well defined with wild strawberry, raspberry preserves and cedar notes.
The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, crisp acidity, superb structure, and a palpable sense of energy and frisson on the finish.
"Château Dauzac, a Margaux ''Grand Cru Classe'' according to the 1855 classification, has the privilege of having a one-block 49 hectares vineyard: 45 hectares with the Margaux appellation and 4 hectares with the Haut-Medoc appellation. Located near the Gironde estuary whose influence on the vineyard’s ecosystem is critical, the property is protected from ocean winds thanks to 120 hectares of meadows and forests.
The oldest known owner in this sector of Margaux was Petrus d’Auzac. In 1190, he received the land from Richard I, “Richard the Lionheart”, King of England, Count of Poitiers, Duke of Aquitaine, Count of Maine and Count of Anjou. While the Benedictine monks of the Sainte-Croix de Bordeaux Abbey were the first to mention, in their records as early as 1545, the “Bourdieu” de Dauzac estate, “Bourdieu” then referring to a farmhouse with a vineyard."
