Winemaker's Notes:

The palate is opulent and full-bodied with spicy black fruits, saturated tannins and a texture so smooth you could slide down it. The production of Le Dome is not large at around 1,000 cases. What little exists, however is made with no expense spared in the pursuit of excellence.

Blend: 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot

About Le Dome:

The Le Dome Single Vineyard is situated in close proximity to Chateau Angelus, Premier Grand Cru Classe. Its origins have their roots in the 'garage' movement of the 1990's. It is one of the three Saint Emilion Grand Crus that outgrew the movement to go on to challenge the 'Cru Classes' each year.
