Description

Château Dauzac 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.

The château is built on a property that has been growing grape vines since the 12th Century, and a reference to “Bourdieu Dauzac” in the records of the Benedictine abbey St. Croix of Bordeaux dates back to 1545. Today, the Dauzac estate covers 120 hectares (295 acres) of land, 45ha (111 acres) of which are planted to vineyards. These are roughly at a 65 percent to 35 percent ratio of Cabernet Sauvignon to Merlot. This vineyard provides fruit for the grand vin and the second wine, Labastide Dauzac, while a 3-ha (7-acre) plot in the Haut-Médoc provides fruit for Dauzac’s third wine, Château Labarde. A fourth wine, Aurore de Dauzac, was made exclusively in the 2013 vintage.
