Winemaker Notes

With its deep and shiny color, Chateau La Dominique brings together the generosity of a Saint Emilion and the typicity of a Pomerol. The nose is intense, characterized by seducing aromas of ripe fruits and subtle spicy notes. In most vintages, you will find truffle and licorice notes, complemented by peppery and woody aromas. With a sharp attack, it is fleshy and round, with silky and precise tannins. The finish is long and full and leaves you with a pleasant feeling of bliss. Aimed to be aged in most vintages, but can also be appreciated during its early years.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Delivers a gorgeous note of crème de cassis, followed by dark plum, anise, blackberry coulis and blueberry reduction notes. A glorious display of fruit, with well-embedded charcoal and graphite accents that help the finish drive on with authority. Should age wonderfully. A very strong showing for this estate. Best from 2016 through 2030.

JS 94
James Suckling

Polished and rich nose with dark deep fruit and dense minerality. Wonderful pure ripe fruit on the palate with a long layered texture and super velvety tannins.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

Ripe, juicy aromas, it offers sweet fruit. It's a ripe wine with blackberry flavors and balanced tannins.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The wine displays plenty of licorice, Christmas fruitcake, black currants, licorice, truffles and some espresso notes. Full-bodied, viscous and somewhat reminiscent of many 2009s, given its blast of fruit, glycerin and heady alcohol, this is a beautifully rich St.-Emilion for pleasure seekers. Don’t discount its ageability, as I am sure it has two decades ahead of it.

V 90
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Bright, deep ruby-red. Youthfully medicinal aromas of black raspberry, licorice, espresso and earth. Densely packed but tight, even a bit disjointed, with serious energy to the flavors of dark berries, spicecake, menthol and fresh herbs. This rich wine's substantial acidity needs time to harmonize with its fruit. Tannins are rather suave. I found both "polished" and "slightly rustic" in my notes. I would not be surprised if this wine merited a higher score with five to seven years of bottle aging.

Chateau La Dominique, , France - Bordeaux
Chateau La Dominique
Driven by enthusiasm and the spirit of enterprise, in 1969 Clément Fayat acquired Château La Dominique, an estate offering a high class terroir, located on the western side of the Saint-Emilion appellation.

Respect for the soil in order to bring out its potential at its best, disciplined and careful work in the vines throughout their life-cycle, greatest care for the grapes from their ripening until the crucial period of fermentation, and finally the closest attention that is paid during the ageing process and the bottling. The winery has 23 hectares and the soils are 25% deep gravel, 75% old sand mixes with gravel over a clay sub-layer. The vines average 30 years of age.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
