2016 Château Dallau, Vignobles Bertin, Bordeaux Supérieur

£12.50 inc. VAT

Very approachable and balanced, with an appreciable richness and weight. Superior Bordeaux!

The predominance of Merlot shows here, with ripe plum and red cherry aromas, a touch of freshly sharpened pencil and a hint of Cabernet Franc’s ‘sous-bois’ character. The palate is generous; there’s some richness lent by oak, finishing with warm spice and ripe, upright tannins. Braised beef or venison, roast chicken, ham or charcuterie is a nice food match.

Description

Very approachable and balanced, with an appreciable richness and weight. Superior Bordeaux!

Located just to the south-west of Lalande-de-Pomerol and Lussac Saint-Emilion, Château Dallau is situated in the commune of Saint Denis de Pile and is the home of Yvette Bertin. The Château’s sand and gravel vineyards comprise 32 hectares of mostly Merlot, along with Cabernet Franc and some Cabernet Sauvignon and average 20 years of age. The grapes are harvested at full maturity by late September or early October, then taken to the winery for sorting and crushing. Low-temperature maceration takes place for a few days to extract the fruit’s flavour. During vinification the temperature is carefully monitored to achieve the desired aromas and structure in the wines. Winemaker Sarah Boireau works with consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud to produce this Bordeaux Supérieur.

I can’t believe it’s not Gavi!

This superb Cortese from Piemonte gives many a more expensive Gavi a run for their money. So what’s in a name? Gavi di Gavi is certainly one that brings to mind classy Italian white and a price tag to match. This wine isn’t a Gavi di Gavi but it’s darn close to one as it […]
