Bright ruby-red. Lively aromas of black cherry and violet. Sweet, supple cherry/berry flavors enlivened by firm acids. Nicely rich and persistent on the finish, which features even tannins. Rating: 85-87 Stephen Tanzer, (Mar 2001)

Château Dalem

Brigitte Roullier-Loussert runs this property with enthusiasm, having taken over from her father, Michel Rullier, who bought it in 1955 from the family that had owned it for the previous three centuries. The estate dates back to 1610, making it one with one of the longest histories in the Bordeaux area, and has a rather lovely 'chateau' in the form of an eighteenth century manor house. The vineyard is currently around ten hectares of south and south-west facing slopes, planted with Merlot and around 10% Cabernet Franc. When we met Brigitte in March 2017, she was buying more vines, and this should more than double the size of the vineyard.
