Château la Fleur Dallon Cuveé Arnaud
Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux
85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
Gold Medal Winner in 2018 at the Concours de Bordeaux. 91 Points International Wine Report. Produced with passion by the meticulous Jean Michel Dallon, in a property that stands on the clay chalk soils that allow the Merlot to express itself beautifully. La Fleur Dallon is an elegant medium bodied wine that is beautifully balanced. A real treat. The fruit shines through soft and supple tannins make a super smooth wine making you want to come back for another glass! Ending with a long and satisfying finish.
The property is situated at the heart of the Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, at the top of the Gironde estuary. A 15 hectare property that stands on the clay chalk soils that allow the Merlot to express itself beautifully. Jean Michel Dallon is a meticulous man who excels himself in the quality of his production. The emphasis is upon the expression of the fruit and this is why he uses cold pre - fermentation maceration for 3 days. He ages his wine in part in stainless steel tanks, and the rest in barrels, blending at the end to preserve the quality of the fruit and avoid over - oaking.
The 2016 Château la Fleur Dallon begins with wonderful aromas of blackberries and dark cherries are woven together with spices, herbs and loads of tobacco nuances. On the palate this is medium-bodied with velvety tannins flavors of dark berries and tobacco that persist through the finish. Fantastic today, however this also looks to have a lovely future ahead.
