(WA91-93 points) The 2015 Château Dalem is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that matured in 50% new oak. It has a very refined and energetic bouquet, beautiful floral scents filtering through the black cherry and red plum fruit, the oak well integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, a sense of symmetry and focus here with a lilting, delicious, tensile finish. What a great Fronsac wine this will be. Tasted twice with consistent notes. - Neal Martin

Wine Spectator, April 2016
(WS90-93 points) A well-built version, with a bolt of chalk down the middle supporting the core of black currant and bitter plum fruit. There's ample grip and really solid energy throughout. - JM

(JS92-93 points) Gorgeous fruit here with balance and beauty. Full body, wonderful polished tannins and a fresh and clean finish.

(JL91-93 points) Pure bottled pleasure, with its silky, opulent textures, rich, ripe fruits and licorice coated black cherry finish, this is probably the best wine I've tasted yet from Dalem.

An incredibly successful Fronsac is the 2015 Château Dalem, which is a 90/10 split of Merlot and Cabernet Franc that saw 50% new oak. It’s a ripe, rounded, incredibly sexy Fronsac that offers notes of white truffles (which makes me think of limestone soils), licorice, chocolate, plums, and currants. It’s loaded with character, has terrific purity, and is going to deliver the goods for at least 10-15 years. This estate sits at the top of the Fronsac plateau, overlooking the Dordogne Valley, and covers 18 hectares plated mostly to Merlot, with 20% Cabernet Franc. The soils consist of a thin layer of clay sitting atop limestone subsoils. The estate is run by the Swiss Rullier family and readers looking for wines that overdeliver should remember this estate.
