An elegant and complex wine from Fronsac

The estate
Overlooking the Isle Valley, a stone's throw from the town of Libourne, Chateau Dalem is a Fronsac estate located in the commune of Saillans. A property that has been active since 1610, this chateau has belonged for three centuries to the same family. It was in 1955 that Michel Rullier took over at the helm of Chateau Dalem.

The vineyard
22 hectares constitute the vineyard of Chateau Dalem. The vines were planted some 40 years ago on clay and limestone plateaus and hillsides.

The vintage
The 2019 vintage got off to a good start with the promise of an early harvest. However, the cool, rainy spring slowed the growing cycle before the hot, dry summer announced a magnificent vintage.

The winemaking and aging
Manual harvest. Density sorting. Fermentation for 28 days. Malolactic fermentation. Aging in new oak.

The blend
Merlot (90%), cabernet franc (10%).

The tasting
The Chateau Dalem 2019 is a complex, juicy and very elegant wine, product of the great work carried out in the winery to enhance the freshness of the fruit.
