The richness of a Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion
In 1996, Château La Dominique obtained the title of Premier Grand Cru Classé B. The transformations conducted within the vineyard and a will to limit yields (25hl / ha) have shown that Château La Dominique was always part of the great vineyards on the Right Bank in the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru appellation.
From oenologist Michel Rolland's services to the construction of a new futuristic winery by Jean Nouvel, Château La Dominique combines all the assets to produce high quality wines.
A real gastronomic wine, the Château La Dominique vintage 2009 reveals an intense bouquet with notes of black plum, wild strawberry and vanilla. On the palate, the ripe fruit notes intensify. Magnificent and harmonious in scale, the palate reveals the delicacy of the chocolate notes and ends with a finish imprinted with a slight sweetness.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Finally we have returned to the great La Dominiques made in 1989 and 1990. This has much of the style of the 1990, with supple tannin and loads of spicy fruitcake, licorice, cassis and kirsch-like notes that jump from this dense ruby/purple wine. Fat, fleshy and full-bodied, with beautiful richness, purity and length, this wine will be approachable in its youth yet last for two decades (just like the 1989 and 1990).
