Château Dalem

Château Dalem

Fronsac Merlot Cabernet Franc 2000

2000 vintage. Drunk in 2021. Excellent, full bodied, black fruit, slight cigar box, slight cinnamon. Beautiful experience. Not overly viscous or filled with sediment as wines of this age can exhibit. — 5 months ago

Tentation de Dalem Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

I really enjoyed this bottle. It’s not too light, but it’s not heavy. The flavor is smooth and slightly dry. Very drinkable from the start. — 7 months ago

#steakandclaret night. Paired nicely with a pan seared ribeye.

This is another Chateau owned by the makers of Chateau Dalem.

Nose of plums and black cherry start to reveal some earth and graphite notes with time in the decanter. Palate with more red fruits. After a couple of hours more mocha flavors emerge. Medium, well integrated tannins and a relatively long finish in the 40 second range. Like many of the '15's I've had, you can drink now for primary fruit, or age a few years. Nice, but I do prefer the Chateau Dalem for a few more dollars.
