Ratings and Tasting Notes:(RP=91+) Tasted at the vertical retrospective at the property. The 2010 Ch?teau Dauzac, a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot, has a well-defined, precise bouquet with blackcurrant, cedar and just a touch of brown sugar. I find more ""Margaux"" expression here than on the 2009. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, very well balanced with more finesse than the 2009. There is so much to like about the 2010: less austere than many of its peers, precise with a tender, silky finish. This is excellent and it has the capacity to age for 15 to 20 years without too much problem. (JS=91) A dense and powerful red with lots of ripe and exotic fruit. Good dose of wood too. Full body, round and chewy. A little old school. (WS=90) A forward red, with soft-edged blueberry, blackberry and plum compote notes laced with sweet toasted spice and backed by a plush edge on the finish. Shows ample depth on the back end, offering a well-embedded tarry hint and a flash of singed mesquite that should emerge more with cellaring. Rather polished for Margaux. Best from 2014 through 2024. (AG=90) Bright medium ruby. Youthfully medicinal aromas of blackberry and licorice. Dense, sweet and deep, with a distinctly tangy quality to the fruit-driven flavors of blueberry, boysenberry and licorice. Not the last word in complexity but finishes with sweet tannins and a light touch. Nicely done.
