Tucked into the southern tip of the Margaux appellation in the commune of Labarde, home to Dauzac, Siran and Giscours, there are some increasingly interesting things happening here. This, for me, is one of the few Margaux that is clearly better than its 2015 counterpart. Planted to 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, they have introduced a second wine for the first time in 2016 and unveiled new cellars, both helping to focus on upping selection for the main wine. You get a full and frank attack of powerful black fruits, tannins with an astringency and life that is extremely promising, and acidity that absolutely accompanies and plays off the other components. There is a slatey minerality and salinity on the finish. A wine to watch under the direction of Laurent Fortin. Apr 2017, www.decanter.com, Drink: 2025-2045
The 2016 Dauzac is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Merlot picked at 45 hectoliters per hectare, picked 13 September and over the next 21 days, which is the longest ever at the property according to estate manager Laurent Fortin. The bouquet is tightly wound at first, then gently unfolds to reveal blackberry, briary, pressed flowers and light minty aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin on the entry, quite firm in the mouth at first, but there is plenty of fresh, predominantly black fruit locked into this Margaux. It is taut and linear with a grippy finish. This is a strong follow-up to the 2015, perhaps without the same flair as the previous vintage, but I am certain that it will "loosen its tie" during elevage. Apr 2017, www.robertparker.com
There's nice intensity here, with a beam of cassis and cherry preserves racing through, flecked with light anise and bay notes. Fresh acidity is nicely embedded on the finish. A restrained style, and sneakily long. Apr 2017, James Molesworth, www.winespectator.com
Tight and chewy with polished tannins and an extremely deep and dense center palate of fruit. Minerally and intense. A nice follow-up after the excellent 2015. Mar 2017, www.jamessuckling.com
Very deep purple. Some sweet coconutty oak in evidence, which I find a bit off-putting. Then a bit green on the finish. Evidence of some make-up here? Not a comfortable whole. Apr 2017, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2026-2038
