A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc picked from 22nd September until the 14th October the La Dominique was a little variable from sample to sample. At the UGC it has a clean crisp bouquet with ripe black cherries and cassis aromas. It is harmonious with well-integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with a spicy entry fleshy tannins and it shows good weight towards the finish. This is promising for future. Tasted April 2012.

Ripe slightly hefty style with plum skin and macerated cherry and currant fruit backed by a well-toasted finish. Verges on over-extracted but has enough lift to keep it honest on the finish.-J.M.

This favorably situated terroir sandwiched between Cheval Blanc and the Pomerol border where La Conseillante and l’Evangile are located has produced another excellent wine for proprietor Clement Fayat. The 2011 La Dominique boasts lots of deep raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with licorice and spice box notes, a medium-bodied mouthfeel, impressive concentration, and no herbaceousness whatsoever. This well-made St.-Emilion can be drunk early in life or cellared for 10-12 years. - Robert Parker

This 25-hectare estate is located on the western edge of St. Emilion near the border of Pomerol. Average vine age is 30+ years planted in deep gravel and sand over clay. Aged primarily in new oak. Expressive natural bouquet with floral and earth notes aromas of raspberry and a hint of caramel. A high-toned limestone minerality gives the wine a lifted structured feel on the palate with underlying turned earth and cranberry nuances. This is a well-built terroir-driven expression of the 2011 vintage and will certainly benefit from 5-10 years of age. Enjoy 2015-2025. Jean-Phillipe Fort consults. Tasted twice.
