Description

96    James Suckling
“Attractive ripe dark berries and some darker chocolate, no to mention sweet earth and violets. The palate has impressive density and depth, not to mention great length and weight. Mulberry and dark-cherry flavors hold fresh. Best from 2022.” (2/2018)

95    Jeb Dunnuck
“Represented by American merchant Jeffrey Davies and made with consulting advice from Michel Rolland, the 2015 Château La Dominique checks in as 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in 60% new barrels. This deep, inky-colored beauty got a few expletives in the notes and offers killer notes of black cherries, plums, spice-box, and incense. Deep, full-bodied, concentrated, and yet still elegant and fresh, with sweet tannin, there’s a little over 5,000 cases produced and it’s a gem to hunt down. It will keep for two decades. Tasted twice.” (11/2017)

95    Antonio Galloni for Vinous
“The 2015 La Dominique is bold, super-ripe and exciting. Black cherry, chocolate, plum, licorice, smoke, crème de cassis and menthol all flesh out in this dramatic, sumptuous Saint-Émilion. Ripe and voluptuous on the palate, with no hard edges, it will drink well pretty much right out of the gate. In 2015, La Dominique exudes a level of aromatic intensity and sheer explosiveness few other wines have.” (2/2018)

93   Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Composed of 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged for 16 months in 60% new and 40% one-year-old barrels, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 La Dominique is earthy on the nose with notions of red and black currants, blueberry compote, spice cake and potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and opulent with beautiful purity, it’s soft and seductive in the mouth, finishing long and perfumed, displaying wonderful energy.” (2/2018)

93    James Molesworth for Wine Spectator
“This has an intense beam of raspberry, red currant and blackberry confiture flavors, carried by a racy graphite edge from start to finish. Light mesquite and iron notes streak through the finish, which ripples with energy. Very solid. Best from 2020 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.” (3/2018)
