Fronsac's fine Château Dalem perches high on a hill, surrounded by its 14 hectares of sloping vineyards. It's an historic estate, with records dating back to 1610 and stayed in the same family until 1955. Michel Rullier then became owner and today it's run with great success by his descendant Brigitte Rullier-Loussert. Its vineyards are nearly all planted to Merlot, with a small amount of Cabernet Franc, and tended with meticulous care. As you can see from critics' scores (93 points from both Wine Advocate and James Suckling), it is a much admired claret and one that ages very well too. Matured in a third new oak, it has structure and length, but above all an appealing fruity depth. Perfect with roast meats or veggie toad-in-the hole.
