A host of blue/black fruits, crème de cassis, mocha, violets, licorice, plums, menthol and smoke race out of the glass. Although quite bold, powerful and racy, the 2015 also has more than enough tannic backbone to balance some of the more overt elements. This is a first class effort from La Dominique.

(JS94-95 points) This has crazy concentration of stone, blueberry and blackberry character. Full body, yet racy and toned. Exciting. Pushing the envelope here.

(JL93-95 points) Combining smoke, tobacco, flowers, black raspberries, wild cherries and earthy notes in the nose, this wine is concentrated with lush, sweet, fat, juicy fruits with an extremely pleasant sense of purity of fruit that feels delightful on your palate. There is a strong depth of flavor with black cherries, licorice and chocolate in the finish. This is the best vintage produced from La Dominique yet. From a blend of 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine reached 14% alcohol. The harvest took place from September 18 to October 7.

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.

Wine Enthusiast, April 2016
(WE92-94 points) This wine has powerful tannins and a tough texture. The fruit at the back shows blackberry flavor that's lifted by fine acidity. As it integrates better, it should be a rich and dense wine.

(WA90-92 points) The 2015 La Dominique is a blend of 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon that was picked between September 18 and October 7 at 38 hectoliters per hectare; 10% went through "vinification intégrale" and then it was matured in 60% new oak. It has a very deep inky color. The bouquet is well-defined but broody at the moment, with blackcurrant, blueberry and even graphite scents, the latter deriving from the Cabernet component of the blend. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin on the entry. This errs towards black rather than red fruit, specifically black cherries and a touch of boysenberry. There is quite a rigid structure packed in behind the fruit, the spicy finish showing just a little more finesse than recent vintages. Although, I feel there is still some way to go in terms of reaching the full potential of the vineyard. - Neal Martin
