Chateau Dalem (Futures Pre-Sale) 2019
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
The Barrel Sample for this wine is above 14% ABV.
*Please note that the Wine.com price of this Bordeaux Future does not include any tariffs. As of today, there remains a 25% tariff imposed on French wines by the U.S. and approved by the World Trade Organization related to the Airbus/Boeing trade dispute. We are hopeful that this tariff will be removed in advance of the wine being released to be imported into the U.S., as Bordeaux Futures typically ship 2-years after they are offered. Should any tariff still be in effect when the wine is ready to be imported, we will contact affected customers via email with an update to our plans and timing.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The house at Dalem of the style of 18th century is well located only separated from the Saint Emilion slopes by the county town of Libourne and the Pomerol vineyard
The vineyard has grown over the centuries. It is oriented to the south and south-west and benefits from a maximum of sunshine. Being up on the hills, the wines are protected from frosts.
The DALEM Vineyard was founded in 1610 and stayed in the same family for more than three centuries. As a result of divisions between inheritors, the wineyard and the house were sold to Michel Rullier in 1955.
Like his predecessors, Michel Rullier has attached the greatest importance to improving the quality of this wine.
In association with oenology and tradition since 2002 his daughter Brigitte at her’s turn strives the veneyard of 15 hectares to give a wine issued of great expression combining at same time powerful with finesse. In 2015 she expanded the vineyard by 11 hectares and 10 additional hectares in 2018.
