Château Dalem, Fronsac 2018
Fronsac is one of Bordeaux’s most underrated regions, producing wines of character and depth, and always great value. From its finest estate, perched high on a hill, this 93-point 2018 has superb depth. The wine has aromas of black forest gateau, baked plums and chocolaty spice. The palate is velvety , with freshness, round tannins, and intense fruit. A top buy.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Château Dalem is a beautiful family history that characterizes this eighteenth century house overlooking the valley of L’Isle. The Castle stands in front of Pomerol and the slopes of Saint-Emilion. Its vineyard, created in 1610, was owned by the same family for three centuries. In 1955, it was passed on to Michel Rullier, whose daughter took over the line in 2002. For more than forty years, Michel Rullier modernized winemaking techniques to improve the quality of his wines and to make them known throughout the world. His daughter continues today by promoting this development internationally.
