品酒筆記法國都薩克堡 五級酒莊一軍紅酒 2015 Chateau Dauzac Margaux
Château Dauzac [wine-searcher] is a producer making Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant Bordeaux blends in the Labarde commune of Margaux, and was ranked a fifth growth in the 1855 Classification of Medoc and Graves. The château gained prominence in the 1880s, when its vineyards were the site of trials that led to the development of a fungicide to combat downy mildew, commonly known as the Bordeaux Mixture, or “bouillie bordelaise”.
The château is built on a property that has records of ownership dating back to the 12th Century, and a reference to “Bourdieu Dauzac” in the records of the Benedictine abbey St. Croix of Bordeaux dates back to 1545. The estate lies in in the commune of Larbarde, at the very eastern end of the Margaux appellation and south of the village of Margaux.
Indeed, while the Dauzac estate covers 120 hectares (295 acres) of land, with a single, 49 hectare (120 acre) block of vineyard, four hectares (10 acres) of it is outside the Margaux appellation and qualifies only for the Haut-Médoc title.
The vineyard is planted to a rough 65 percent to 35 percent ratio of Cabernet Sauvignon to Merlot. This provides fruit for the grand vin and the second wine, Labastide Dauzac.
