Château Dalem is a picturesque eighteenth century estate in Fronsac, overlooking the valley of L’Isle. With history in winemaking at the property dating back to 1610, it remained in the same family ownership until the vineyard was purchased by Michel Rullier in 1955. Today, Chateau Dalem is managed by his daughter Brigitte Rullier-Loussert. The 40-hectare vineyard of Chateau Dalem is planted to 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, on limestone-clay plateau across 15 plots. Spices, flowers, fruits, silky tannins and layers of red and black plums that are a treat to taste. The wine is medium-bodied, soft, round and delivers length and complexity in the finish.
