Owned by the MAIF insurer for twenty years, this vintage is operated by the André Lurton Vineyards, under the direction of Christine Lurton de Chaix. Originting from a beautiful unit located in Labarde, a small town rich in terroirs of choice, its wine shows that it is of good origin. First by its garnet color, then by its concentrated bouquet with accents of black and red fruits and licorice. The ample and generous tannins reveal a power that confirms the final, long and balanced, to the grilled accents.

Tasting Notes

"In my opinion, this is as high as Dauzac has ever set the quality bar. Like most of its neighbors in Margaux, this estate has hit a home run in 2005. Scents of pain grille, crushed rocks, white flowers, and sweet black currants and cherries soar from the glass of this offering. Revealing tremendous power, intensity, length, and still to be resolved tannin, this is not meant for consumers seeking immediate gratification. It requires 5-6 years of cellaring, and should keep for 25-30 years. Yes, it is the best Dauzac ever made!" - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (4/23/2006, Issue 164), Ratings: 90-92, Drink: 2011-2036

"This wine comes from a property located at the very southern end of the appellation of Margaux long-owned by André Lurton. It is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot with hints of earth, new saddle leather and spice box. A more masculine style emerges from this medium to full-bodied, surprisingly concentrated Margaux, which is pure, slightly more robust and exuberant than I remember ten years ago, but delicious, pure and a sleeper of the vintage. A big wine for Dauzac and impressively endowed, it is still youthful, but certainly accessible. It could even drink well for another 15-20 years where it is well-stored." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (6/28/2015, Issue 219), Ratings: 90+, Drink: 2015-2035
