Chateau Dalem Fronsac 2019 94 JD
94 Points Jeb Dunnuck
Readers looking for a smoking deal in the vintage should grab bottles of the 2019 Château Dalem. This rich, medium to full-bodied, mouth-filling effort has lots of ripe darker cherry and blackberry fruit as well as tobacco, cedar pencil, and violet nuances. Rich, textured, balanced, and with a real sense of purity and class, it's ideal for enjoying over the coming 10-12, if not 15 years or so. Best after 2022.
94 Points Wine Advocate
Deep purple-black colored, the 2019 Dalem needs a few swirls before it really starts to show off all its vibrant black cherries, kirsch and black raspberry scents, followed by hints of camphor, pencil shavings and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of crunchy black fruits with loads of freshness and perfume and a soft, approachable texture, finishing with a minty kick.
93 Points James Suckling
Blueberries, minerals, slate and stone. It’s medium-bodied with medium,polished tannins and a linear finish. Nice balance. Lovely length to this.
92 Points Wine Spectator
Sleek and taut, with chalky threads running along the edges of a core of fresh cherry puree and cassis notes. Features a subtle tobacco accent throughout, with nice cut through the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now.
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.
Blend: 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
