Critic Notes

The 2017 La Dauphine has a well-defined, focused, well-mannered bouquet with concentrated blackberry, raspberry preserve and graphite aromas. The palate is well balanced with grippy tannin, not as sensual as the nascent Dalem and with more expressive, peppery Cabernet Franc driving the finish. It will be fascinating to see how this ages.

Score: 89-91/100Neal MartinDrinking Window: 2021 - 2035

Deep purplish crimson. Ripe and lifted black cherry and cassis fruit with a hint of coffee. Firm, chewy and quite oaky on the palate but I hope it will all come round with more time in bottle. (JH)

Score: 16-/20Jancis RobinsonDrinking Window: Drink 2024-2030

The deep garnet-purple colored 2017 de la Dauphine opens with black cherries and warm blackberries notes with wafts of Indian spices and dusty soil. The palate is medium-bodied, firm and chewy with a lively line and long earthy finish. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com
