Chateau La Dominique 2006
Bordeaux Red Blends from St-Emilion, Bordeaux, France
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon and aged entirely in oak barrels for 15 to 18 months.
"After several listless performances from this superb terroir near Cheval Blanc and the Pomerol border, La Dominique’s 2006 exhibits a dense purple color and a sweet nose of licorice, nori (the seaweed wrapper used in sushi restaurants), raspberry, and kirsch. Full, with a certain flamboyance, ripe tannins, and a layered, long finish, this is a terrific La Dominique to drink over the next 12-14 years."
