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
"A full-bodied wine, but ethereal in its elegance and finesse, the wine has a strikingly provocative bouquet of camphor, blueberry jam, violets, new saddle leather, white chocolate and spice. Extremely full-bodied, but again, not showing any weighty fatigue or any type of aggressiveness, this wine has extraordinary purity and richness as well as a blockbuster finish of close to a minute, yet is so flawless, seamless and compelling, it's hard to believe the wine is this concentrated and rich. It will be interesting to see how it evolves, but it certainly can be drunk in 3-4 years and, I'm sure, cellared for as long as 25-35 years from now."
The Wine Advocate
"Beautifully perfumed wine, profiting from the great Cabernet Franc in 2010, with almost silky tannins. The heady berries are surrounded with violets, giving a wine with great final freshness.Barrel Sample: 94-96 Points"
"A burly, extracted style, with lots of roasted apple wood and mesquite flavors leading the way, followed by briary grip and slightly chewy plum, blackberry and black currant fruit flavors. Shows more heft than cut and drive, featuring scads of tobacco, ganache and loam on the finish. If cellaring can tame the chewy edges, this will become an impressive, modern-styled wine down the road. Best from 2016 through 2030."
"Deep ruby. Brooding aromas of strawberry, dark chocolate, mint and smoky oak, plus a hint of volatile acidity that adds lift. Rich and sweet on entry, then increasingly austere toward the back, finishing pure and long, with captivating cabernet franc red fruit and floral notes. This wine will need time to resolve its serious tannins. Le Dome's vines are located immediately to the west of Angelus. Owner Jonathan Maltus thinks it's the best Le Dome he's made yet, and he may be right. I liked its steely purity, but it's quite tannic today and lacking in generosity.Range: 90-93 Points"

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.
