Community Tasting Notes (16) Avg Score: 90.2 points

  • I'm going to hold off giving this the same score I did the 01, 05, and 09 because its still so, so young. Needs time to show elegance, because all you're going to get right now is unbridled margaux power. This a serious wine that needs time to come together. Rippin acid and destructive tannins are going to make this well worth the wait for this excellent vintage. Drink after 2022. Given time, I wouldn't be surprised if this turns our to be the highest scoring wine I will ever grade.

  • Decanted for 45 minutes and served with grilled NY Strips - paired well. Dark black/red color. Black currants, charcoal, blackberry, tobacco on nose. On palate, blackberry, black currants with medium body, high acidity and long finish with grippy tannins. Really enjoyed this and was much better with air. 91-92 range. Would buy again.

  • At a classified Bordeaux tasting. A number of tasters thought this was California-like. I disagree, just lots of fruit from this vintage. Decanted about 2 hours, it needs at least that and much more time. The fruit is overwhelming now. Might be difficult to pair, easier to sip if you are tempted to open one any time soon.

  • Very much Cab. S with hints of oak, green pepper, plum, vanilla, cedar and cassis. Good balance on the palate, a bit dry tannins, lots of dark fruit, oak, pepper, plum, vanilla, minty spice and cedar. Medium acidity, medium (+) tannins, medium alcohol, medium body. Long finish. Very nice Bdx but perhaps not the best.

  • Expressive nose of berries. Palate was slightly confusing with few distinct flavors save berries and a hint of oak. Opaque purple colour. My fellow wine tenderfoots enjoyed it very much over dinner.

    (Chateau Dauzac (Margaux)) The assemblage here is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot. This particular barrel sample has a rather bright and crunchy fruit style on the nose, with a somewhat crystalline-fruit character to it, which is surprising given the ripeness and richness of the vintage. A gently polished palate follows this, showing a reserved flesh, with slightly drier and more chewy tannins coming in through the middle, not too forceful but not sitting too well on the lighter style of fruit here either. Indeed, on a second taste, these tannins really dominate the midpalate, giving it a big, chewy style. Rather a bruiser of a Margaux.
