Labastide Dauzac Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Labastide Dauzac Rouge

The second wine of Château Dauzac, Labastide Dauzac, is made from young vines or plots that do not go into the Grand Vin of this Margaux classified growth. Labastide is produced in the estate’s renovated cellars with the same care and attention as its older brother, Château Dauzac, in order to express its own version of this unique Médoc terroir.


2013 Labastide Dauzac label
Appellation : Margaux

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 58% / Merlot 42%.

Weather

There was record rainfall during the first half of 2013. Spring was very cool, even cold (May and June), and this caused a major delay in vine growth (flowering). Much more clement weather (warm and sunny) arrived in July and lasted until the harvest.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Beautifully brilliant crimson colour.

Nose

Fresh, elegant, fruity nose with a delicately smoky component reminiscent of toasted almonds.

Mouth

Well-balanced on the palate, with a good long aftertaste. Concentrated and smooth. There is also an elegance there typical of its Margaux origins. The aftertaste is attractively fresh.

Consumption period

2016 - 2030
