Chateau Dauzac Margaux (Futures) 2015
JS94: "Plenty of richness and depth to this excellently focused and pure expression of Margaux. Rich plum-fruit aromas and flavors are delivered amid very powerful, fresh tannins. A class act. Try from 2023." - James Suckling
NM93: "The 2015 Dauzac has a wonderful nose that is just pure unadulterated Margaux, very pure and floral with ebullient black cherry and cassis aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine thread of acidity, very harmonious and with superb depth. This has really come on impressively in barrel and could be one of the hidden gems of the vintage. Do not underestimate this lil' gem. Anticipated maturity: 2020 - 2038." - Neal Martin
WA91-93: "The 2015 Dauzac is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot, the highest percentage of the former in recent years, and matured in 60% new oak barrels. It has a tightly wound but precise bouquet with scents of blackberry cassis and a hint of violet - very polished and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, pure black fruit laced with graphite and spice, gently building in the mouth, finishing with a precise and quite sustained, Pauillac-inspired grace. This is an excellent wine from the estate that will give 20-25 years of drinking pleasure."
