Chateau Dauzac 2005

Varietal: 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot

Tasting Note: The purple color—with shades of ruby—is very dark, deep, and almost black. A nose that is immediately very intense and rich. Ripe, black fruit mixes with notes of chocolate, vanilla and spices. Soft scents of animal and leather emerge when it is agitated. The diversity of aromas is remarkable. This wine is immediately generous and smooth on the palate. The tannins are silky and surprisingly rich, creating an imposing yet perfectly balanced backbone. The aromas that emerge on the palate are as varied and intense as they are in the nose. Very ripe fruit, almost prune, easily stand up to the woody, smoky character that lengthens the taste for many seconds.

A wealth of tannins and infinite suppleness make this wine an exquisite enigma. Powerful and delicate at the same time, Dauzac wine never cheats, always astonishes and ages marvelously.
