Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 89

Tasted at the vertical retrospective at the property. The 2005 Château Dauzac, a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, appears to have reached full maturity on the nose, although there is abundant blackberry and mulberry fruit to suggest that it will keep for many years. The palate is medium-bodied, a little rustic on the entry with touches of bay leaf and tea leaf, though there I perceived some dryness creeping in towards the finish. Drink this now and over the next 5-8 years, because though it constitutes a commendable 2005, it is not quite living up to the promise it showed in its youth and in my opinion, is surpassed by subsequent vintages. Tasted June 2015. [28/09/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2016-2025 – 16

Tasted blind. Dark crimson. Pale rim. Lightly singed nose. Very chunky tannins. Stolid. Not much lift. The mark is for effort rather than achievement. [23/02/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029

Vinous – 86-88

Good ruby-red. Nose offers hints of very ripe black fruits as well as a slightly weedy quality. Supple on entry, then a bit medicinal in the middle, with black fruit and herbal flavors and a faint gamey quality. Seems heavily extracted rather than truly fleshy. Finishes with broad, dusty, slightly dry tannins. The young 2006 struck me as more graceful. [Stephen Tanzer, 05/01/2007]
