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.


label of 2014 Labastide Dauzac
Appellation : Margaux

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 51% / Merlot 49%

Weather

Winter and spring were very mild, but the summer of 2014 did not live up to our expectations: it rained heavily in July, and August was much cooler than usual. However, starting in September, a miraculous Indian summer with high temperatures, was very favourable to ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

A gleaming ruby robe with purple tints.

Nose

The fruity and delicate nose is underscored by tobacco notes.

Mouth

The attack is full and elegant, immediately conveying the pedigree of this wine. The tannins are full and refined. They provide nice freshness with notes of Morello cherries to finish. We will take pleasure in tasting on  veal with morels, or a succulent leg of lamb.

Consumption period

2017 - 2030
