JS 93
jamessuckling.com, April 2017
(JS92-93 points) Tight and chewy with polished tannins and a extremely deep and dense center palate of fruit. Minerally and intense too. Really fine and precise. A nice follow through after the excellent 2015.

(WA90-92 points) The 2016 Dauzac is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Merlot picked at 45 hectoliters per hectare, picked 13 September and over the next 21 days, which is the longest ever at the property according to estate manager Laurent Fortin. The bouquet is tightly wound at first, then gently unfolds to reveal blackberry, briary, pressed flowers and light minty aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin on the entry, quite firm in the mouth at first, but there is plenty of fresh, predominantly black fruit locked into this Margaux. It is taut and linear with a grippy finish. This is a strong follow-up to the 2015, perhaps without the same flair as the previous vintage, but I am certain that it will "loosen its tie" during élevage. - Neal Martin

Wine Enthusiast, April 2017
(WE90-92 points) The wine is firm and dark, dry with tannins, perhaps too much tannin for the fruit. It's always likely to be a firm, dry wine.
