Winemaker Notes

Intense garnet red color. A classy nose for this famous 2010 vintage, combining black cherry with a slightly acid note reminiscent of pear drops. Pure on the palate with an explosion of red fruit and tannin of great intensity, promising well for the ageing potential of this wine. A treasure that you should have in your cellar, given the complexity and richness of this Chateau de La Dauphine 2010.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator

A bright, lively, floral style, with lots of raspberry and cherry fruit. A floral edge hangs on through the long, licorice-filled finish.
Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points

JS 91
James Suckling

Ripe dark cherries with some blueberry, leather and licorice. Opens up with orange blossom and violets. Really sweet and pretty fruit on the palate with a nice juicy acidity and fine tannins. Vibrant and fresh with medium body and length. Charming and enjoyable but a bit tight and bitter in the finish.

Chateau La Dauphine
In 1709, J-F Proteau sold La Dauphine to the Olivier family. At the time, Jean Olivier was an advisor to the King and Chief Finances Clerk for Guyenne. La Dauphine remained in the same family for almost three centuries.

The château was built between 1744 and 1750 by Jean-Baptiste de Richon, a lawyer at the Parliament of Paris, and a Civil and Criminal Judge in the Duchy of Fronsac. Shortly after its construction, Maria Josepha of Saxony, the Dauphine of France, wife of Louis-Ferdinand de France (the Dauphin, son of Louis XV), and mother of several of the last Kings of France (including Louis XVI) stayed at the château for a few days. This event contributed to the property’s reputation.

In 1985, François-Régis Marcetteau de Brem, the last descendant of the Olivier family, sold La Dauphine to the Moueix family of Libourne (who also own Petrus, Château Trotanoy and Magdeleine). In 2000, Jean Halley (a former director and co-founder of the Promodes group) acquired Château de La Dauphine. Jean Halley, who died in 2011, and his son, Guillaume, undertook major investments to enhance the expression of the terroir and further develop the property’s reputation.

Light-bodied but captivating with flavors of citrus blossom, melon, white peach and fennel, Verdejo is native to Rueda, Spain, and is growing in popularity. If you’re used to drinking Sauvignon blanc or Pinot grigio, this is the wine for you! Contrary to what some may think, it is actually not related to the Portugese variety with a very similar name, Verdelho. In fact, DNA profiling suggests it is most likely a sibling of Godello, a variety native to northwest Spain. Enjoy this little charmer with a variety of dishes like fish tacos, Thai food, papaya salad or even lemon-spritzed asparagus and steamed artichokes.
