2017 Chateau Dauzac (FUTURES)


“90 – 93 points.

“The 2017 Dauzac was picked from 17 September and finished at the end of the month. Matured in 65% new oak it has a surprisingly intense black cherry, blueberry and violet, a vivacious bouquet that I hope is in situ once this is bottled. The palate is medium-bodied with dense black fruit, wild strawberry, quite grippy in the mouth with a structured but elegant finish. Don’t under-estimate this Margaux because under Laurent Fortin the team produced a delightful Margaux.”  – Vinous

“92 – 93 points.

“This builds on the palate with medium to full body, lots of dark fruits and a full tannins that drive the finish. Shows energy and length. Precise and transparent. Could be better than 2016?” – James Suckling

“90 – 93 points.

“Pure, with a streak of iron adding some tension to the mix of damson plum and red currant flavors. A light floral hint weaves over the top. Fresh acidity.—J.M.”  – Wine Advocate
