AOP Margaux

Château Dauzac Grand Cru Classé 2016

€1620 Flacon de 10cl

The Indian summer of October 2016 gave Château Dauzac its longest harvest on record. To obtain the maximum ripeness, the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon were picked over 21 days. Discover a Margaux Cru Classé with an almost black colour and an incredibly concentrated nose of blackberry notes, fern and end notes of oak. At tasting, this wine reveals an astute balance of opulence and freshness, along with excellent concentration.

Winemakers

Laurent Fortin & Philippe Roux

Classed as a fifth Grand Cru Classé in 1855, Margaux’s Château Dauzac covers 49 hectares, of which 45 are in the Margaux appellation and four in the Haut-Médoc. Philippe Roux, who has been the château’s technical director for 20 years, works dedicatedly to produce a Margaux in the most classic of styles - in what he describes as a search for the ultimate harmony between alcohol, acidity and tannin. The supervision of the château by Philippe Roux and Laurent Fortin, who has been the estate’s CEO since 2013, has placed this Margaux Cru Classé in a category of excellence.
