This is so energetic and vibrant with dark-berry and citrus undertones that lead the wine to a tight and linear finish. Medium body, pretty fruit and vivid structure.

93-94 points, James Suckling (Apr 2019)

The 2018 Dalem (90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc) is deep garnet-purple in color and a little broody to begin, giving way to a core of baked blueberries, kirsch, redcurrant jelly and blackberry pie plus wafts of bay leaves and truffles. Full-bodied with bags of generous black fruit sparked by red fruit accents and a firm, velvety texture, it has a lovely refreshing lift on the finish.

92-94+ points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (Issue # Interim - Apr 2019)

From a south-facing vineyard overlooking the Dordogne river, the 2018 Château Dalem is a beautiful blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that will see 14 months in 40% new oak. It offers a ripe yet pure bouquet of blueberries, plums, graphite, licorice, and earth. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied Fronsac that has ample ripeness (it’s 15%), notable freshness and purity, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It’s going to drink nicely for at least a decade.

90-92 points, Jeb Dunnuck (May 2019)
