This feels a true step up in quality. The Cabernet Sauvignon has been increased by this point, and it gives an extra dimension to the wine. It's very well balanced, with juicy flavours of cassis, fig, liquorice and chargrilled cedar. What a wine the 2005 is, it just keeps on delivering, bringing out the best of the vintage and of the estate. (JA)
This seems to tread the line between power and great style with ease. While the fruit is concentrated, it is sweet and ripe, balanced with acidity. Very poised, layered with some good firm tannins and a solid core of dry fruits. (RV)
Lots of deep fruit and firm and silky tannins. Full body, polished texture. Energy and bright. Needs time to soften still but very pretty.
Has an impressively dark color, with lots of crushed berry, mineral and licorice aromas that follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Racy and tight, with beautiful tannins. (JS)
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. (NM)
