2018 Chateau Dalem
Region: Bordeaux - Fronsac
Cépage: Merlot (90%); Cabernet Franc (10%)
Size: 750 ml
Rating(s): 93 (RP); 91 (JD); 93 (JS)
"The 2018 Dalem has a deep garnet-purple color and compelling notes of blackberry preserves, wild blueberries and ripe, juicy black plums, with hints of dark chocolate, licorice and black olives. The full-bodied palate (15% alcohol) appears bright and fresh with the lively black fruits framed by soft, velvety tannins, finishing long and savory. Nicely done!"
