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.
"The brilliant 2006 Le Dome (94) offers plenty of cassis and camphor as well as a terrific texture and that almost surreal lightness that comes from the high percentage of Cabernet Franc and what is obviously a top-flight vineyard. This elegant offering is not as dense as the 2008, but it is capable of lasting 15 or more years."
The Wine Advocate
"Benefiting from the great quality of Cabernet Franc in 2006, this is a beautiful wine, perfumed and seductive. The fruit tannins are so well integrated with wood that they are only just dominant. Ripe, opulent but also firmly structured, this will age magnificently over five years or more."
"A very attractive wine, with berry, chocolate and light toasty oak on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a medium, caressing finish. Very pretty, if young. Best after 2013."
