2020 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 93

Dark in color, the wine is filled with flowers, blackberries, smoke, violets, licorice and earthy aromas. Lush, elegant, polished, sweet fruit fills your palate and leaves you with hints of bitter cocoa and supple textured, dark cherries in the finish. 92-94 Pts

2019 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 94

Deep in color, the wine is medium-bodied, silky and finesse driven. The ripe fruit struts all over the place with its energetic presence. More than fruit, you also enjoy its flowery charm before arriving at the spicy, sensuous, refined, lengthy finish. The wine is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot aging in 67% new, French oak barrels. 93-95 Pts

2018 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 92

Medium/full-bodied, soft, round, lush, ripe and fruity with loads of sweet black cherry, plum, tobacco, flowers and hints of spice on the nose and palate. There is good freshness to the fruity and softness to the tannins. Give this another 7-8 years and it should be showing quite well. 92 Points

2017 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 91

There is a roundness to the tannins, that comes from a healthy dose of Merlot in the blend. The ripe, dark cherries are sweet, fresh and smoky, with earthy, leafy and floral nuances attached. This is already quite nice and should age well, for at least another 2 decades or longer. 91 Points

Medium bodied and pashmina soft, there is a smooth sweetness emanating from the fruit. This is not complex, instead it offers a straightforward, laid-back moment of pleasure. The wine was produced from blending 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and 31% Merlot. 90 Points

2015 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 92

Medium/full bodied, the wine is fresh, lively, silky and infused with all the sweet, ripe, red and black fruits, flowers and tobacco you need, before the perfectly, soft, round, fruit filled finish kicks in. 92 Points

Sweet, black cherries, spring flowers, licorice, earth and tobacco scents work perfectly with soft, round, dark, ripe fruits and silky tannins. 91 - 93 Pts

2014 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 89

With a roundness to the tannins, and freshness to the red red fruits, this should drink well early, yet, develop more complexities as this medium bodied wine ages. 89 Points

This is not a wine I taste often but I was truly impressed with this vintage, as the recent change in ownership/management has clearly made a difference. Round textures, ripeness in the fruit and a kiss of oak, this elegant wine finishes on a note of dewy, lusciously ripe berries. 88-90 Pts

2013 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 87

Light, bright, and offering, simple, red fruits ranging from cherries to cranberry paired with floral notes, the finish is crisp and short. 87 Points

2012 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 86

Medium bodied, soft textured cherries and earthy notes are found in this correctly made wine. Perhaps a few years of bottle age will add to the wines complexity. 85-87 86 Points

2011 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 84

Short, medium bodied with bright red fruits, spice and earth in the dry finish. Definitely more interesting on the nose than the palate. The wine wa produced from a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Merlot, making it one of the largest percentages of Merlot in the Medoc. 84 Points

2010 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 87

Medium bodied, with more red fruits than black, the wine has freshness, but the blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot lacks ample ripeness and concentration. 87 Points

2009 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 90

From an assemblage of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot, the wine opens with coffee bean, fresh blackberries, plums and floral aromas. Round, soft and concentrated, this fun to taste, reasonably priced Margaux wine was a surprise, as I do not see it often. 90 Points

2008 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 88

Young, masculine, firm, tannic, slightly more interesting on nose, with its floral, cedar wood, tobacco and blackberry notes, than on the palate, which leans to the austere side. This could improve if it softens with more age. 88 Points

2006 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 88

Better on the earthy, tobacco, floral and red berry nose than on the austere, tannic palate with its bright, crisp, strict finish. 88 Points

2005 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 90

Attention grabbing aromatics of flowers, black and red plums, cassis, smoke and licorice. Still tannic, this concentrated, round Margaux wine needs at least another 5-7 more years before it begins to express its personality. 90 Points

2001 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 88

Medium bodied, and on the fresh, bright, red fruit style range, the texture is soft, marking this as mature and quite easy to drink. However, it is not a wine to hold, so if you have some, pop it over the next few years. 88 Points

2000 Château Dauzac  (Margaux) 90

This classic, old school, traditionally styled Margaux wine is medium bodied, slightly firm, fresh and lets you in on its cassis, tobacco, wet earth and red berry character. Ready to drink, there is a fresh, crisp tart edge to the red fruits in the earthy finish. Fans of this style of wine might enjoy it even more. 90 Points
