This bottle is among François-Louis Vuitton's favourite great Bordeaux Wines. He asked its owner to dedicate a private bin to its attention, as the ultimate expression of art and craftsmanship, a delicious invitation to shared pleasures.
Grand Cru Classé in 1855, Château Dauzac has been revealing for centuries the quintessence of an exceptional terroir by perpetuating the tradition inherited from the past and by valuing the estate's exceptional biodiversity, a key source for the quality of the wine.
Soil: Dauzac's terroir is fittingly made up of a deep bench of large-sized gravel, in a geological vein specific to this wine. These layers of large gravel of variying thicknesses, remnants of old alluvial terraces, sit on a sub-soil of clay and gravel.
Area: 49 ha
Varietal: 68% Cabernet Sauvignon / 32% Merlot
Vinegrowing: Involvement in highly integrated farming using organic fertiliser. Grape varieties and rootstock adapted to each plot. Limited yield, manual harvesting.
Winemaking: Every Plot is vinified separately in thermo-regulated vats. Chateau Dauzac is about to become the first Grand Cru wine classified in 1855 that can claim to make 100% vegan wines.
Aging: 14 to 16 months in lightly toasted extra-fine French oak barrels, with approximately 60% new barrels to preserve the integrity of the fruit and produce vintage wines.
