The Story

With its deep and shiny colour, Château 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.

Written Notes

Deep colour. Fresh intense dark plum elderberry praline aromas with fresh herb garden violet aniseed notes. Inky and vigorous with plenty of dark plummy fruits, supple yet chewy textures, underlying savoury ginger oak complexity and long lively acidity. Finishes bitter sweet. and inky.  Quite classical in proportion. Tasted at the Union des Grand Crus and Ch La Dominique 95 points
