2016 Chateau De La Dauphine (750ml)

Merlot from Fronsac, Bordeaux, France

2016 Chateau De La Dauphine
93JS
91V

A firm and chewy red with dark-berry, chocolate and walnut character with some salty, mineral undertones. Full body. Dense and driven for the vintage. A blend of 90 per cent merlot and ten per cent cabernet franc.

93 points, James Suckling (Feb 2019)

The 2016 La Dauphine is fabulous. Exotic, super-ripe and flamboyant to the core, the 2016 possesses tremendous depth and tons of personality. Blackberry jam, plum, chocolate, espresso, spice and licorice give the 2016 its distinctly dark personality. The extracted style brings out darker shades of fruit and heavy torrefaction notes at the expense of fruit brightness and freshness, which is a stylistic choice. I would prefer to drink the 2016 over the next few years.

91 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Jan 2019)
