Chateau Dauzac La Bastide Dauzac Margaux
Produced on clayey gravel conducive to the best expression of Merlot and the intensity of Cabernet Sauvignon, Labastide Dauzac is characterized by its great suppleness and fruitiness. True to the Margaux terroir, Labastide Dauzac is a well-balanced wine.
52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot
The climate at the beginning of the year was oceanic; there was then a long period of sun and heat until September 13, when precipitation allowed the vines to reach full maturity. An Indian summer in October resulted in the longest harvest in the history of Château Dauzac (21 days), enabling us to pick the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes at peak maturity. The 2016 vintage is extremely rich and precise without being excessive, revealing bright fruit and a dense and complex raw material. The high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon gives it an exceptional acidity/alcohol balance that is an indication of a great vintage.
Appearance: purplish red with purple tints.
Nose: the fruity nose is underlined by spices.
Mouth: the attack is full, immediately conveying the pedigree of this balanced, complex wine. A precise Margaux with a fresh finish.
Peak expression after 4 to 7 years, can be aged up to 15 years.
