Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling

Aromas of blueberry, mulberry, spiced plum, walnut, tobacco and cigar box on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm, silky tannins that frame a core of ripe blue and purple fruit. Polished and rich with wonderful depth. Better from 2024.

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
This wine from a Vignobles Clément Fayat château is continuing to make great strides. It is powerful, revealing blackberry fruits, firm acidity and dense tannins. Coming together, they will give a fine wine.
Barrel Sample: 93-95
JD 95
Jeb Dunnuck

This estate has a terrific terroir and lies next to Cheval Blanc and Ripeau. Their 2018 Château La Dominique offers a medium to full-bodied, beautifully elegant and refined style to go with complex aromatics of black raspberries, cassis, spring flowers, and exotic spices. It’s not the biggest or richest wine out there, but it has class, elegance, and purity. This beautiful wine will drink nicely in its youth due to its balance, but will also age gracefully. The blend is 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Barrel Sample: 93-95.

D 94
Decanter

This wine doesn't always get the balance right for me, but in 2018 La Dominique manages to convey power and intensity without a trace of overly sweet fruit or oak. It's well balanced, elegant and fresh but with power, concentration and ageing potential. A hugely impressive effort, helped by a slight austerity to the tannins through the finish. The estate is located right next to Cheval Blanc and is currently in the middle of an ambitious replanting programme that will put the emphasis on Cabernet Franc. Michel Rolland consults. Drinking Window 2027 - 2040. Barrel Sample: 94

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 La Dominique is quite cedary to begin, with truffles and fungi wafts over a core of baked plums, Morello cherries and boysenberries plus tree bark scents. Full, concentrated and packed with black fruit, it has rounded tannins and just enough freshness to lift the finish.
Barrel Sample: 90-92

Chateau La Dominique, France
Chateau La Dominique Winery Image
Driven by enthusiasm and the spirit of enterprise, in 1969 Clément Fayat acquired Chateau 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.
