Chateau Dallau 2012 - Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon


Château Dallau is located north of Libourne in the St Denis de Pile area. The 32Ha of vineyards are mainly planted with Merlot – the king of the Libourne area – which brings body and fruitiness to the wine, Cabernet Sauvignon adding structure and freshness, while Cabernet Franc adds aromatic complexity.

Wine growing has run in the Bertin family since 1742, each generation bequeathing onto the next one their love of the craft, together with their skills and know-how.
