Alain Brumont is the king of the Tannat grape. A beautiful vintage from this remarkable Chateau. Big, intense and complex nose ending with hints of fruit jam, spices and even cocoa!

His Chateau Montus and Bouscasse are wines which are compared to the top 1st Growths at blind tastings.Learn More£23.50
Chateau Dalem, Fronsac, 2014
Medium bodied with plenty of very fine, grippy tannin, medium acid, flavours of dark cherry, cacao and licorice flow into a fresh, medium length finish. Good right-bank character. Oak is evident but under control and integrates nicely. Pure bottled pleasure.
Chateau Dalem is best served relatively cool (about 15 degrees) which gives the wine more freshness and lift. Young vintages can be decanted for up to 1 hour. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume.Learn More£30.00
