The 2021 Dalem, now benefiting from the consulting nous of Eric Boissenot, has a lovely bouquet, quite refined and poised, featuring blackberry, wild hedgerow and light violet scents. The balanced palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins and assiduously integrated oak. It fans out generously on the finish. Classy Fronsac. Read more

Blackberry, graphite and black-cherry aromas follow through to a full to medium body, creamy tannins and a juicy finish with blackberry, iron and ink.

Gentle red fruit flavours permeate the palate giving a sense of vibrancy, this has the acidity and mouthwatering aspects but also the frame and structure that gives a push/pull of both life and constriction. I like the texture and the salty stone as well as sour fruit aspects creating real interest on the palate. It's lightly framed but well worked with excellent clarity. A great effort here.

Antonio Galloni MW - Vinous

The 2021 Dalem is an attractive wine, but it is also a bit light. It's hard to say if that is just the vintage or also part of a change in direction that has seen Eric Boissenot take on the role of consultant. Time will tell. For now, red/purplish fruit, blood orange and spice are nicely delineated, but the wine's personality feels a bit attenuated.

Winemakers Note

The estate Beautiful 18th century house with a park overlooking the Isle valley. The vineyard located in the Fronsac appellation dates back to 1610 and has remained in the same family for more than three centuries. Following a number of divisions, the vineyard and the château were sold to Michel Rullier in 1955. His daughter Brigitte Rullier Loussert took over the management in 2002 and has feminized the wines without taking away their "quiet strength". The wines are full of character, elegance and delicacy.
