*This price includes all shipping and taxes- due 2024* Eric Bissenot is the eonologist who consults for Châteaux Lafite, Latour, Margaux and Mouton Rothschild, plus super-seconds such as Léoville Las Cases and Ducru-Beaucaillou. A fantastic 2021 from Dalem. Plenty of fruit on the nose - blackberry, black cherry, ripe red berries and plum, some floral note and chocolate and coffee creaminess. A rich palate with flavours of red and black berries, nicely integrated oak, framed by some ripe tannins and some lively, slightly mineral acidity.

Blackberry, graphite and black-cherry aromas follow through to a full to medium body, creamy tannins and a juicy finish with blackberry, iron and ink.

Cask sample. Roasted coffee and violets, cocoa and crushed blackberries. A rich and rounded palate, nicely structured with firm, detailed tannins and excellent freshness. Not hugely concentrated but very enjoyable and promising. (AC)

Gentle red fruit flavours permeate the palate giving a sense of vibrancy, this has the acidity and mouthwatering aspects but also the frame and structure that gives a push/pull of both life and constriction. I like the texture and the salty stone as well as sour fruit aspects creating real interest on the palate. It's lightly framed but well worked with excellent clarity. A great effort here.
