#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.

Château Dalem

Fronsac Merlot Cabernet Franc 2000

Nose of mocha, vanilla, black currant, mushrooms... very nice 18 year old right bank nose. The palate is very fluid, and more on the length than on the width. Nice red and black Forrest fruits, melted tannins. Long blackberry finish. Very interesting wine ! — 4 years ago
