    Grand Cru Saint Emilion, the Chateau La Dominique is located on the northwest of the Saint-Emilion appellation, neighbour to the Chateau Cheval Blanc and Chateau Figeac. Bought in 1969 by Clément Fayat, today it combines authenticity and modernity thanks to renovations, including its contemporary winery designed by Jean Nouvel. The 2008 vintage is a blend of ssMerlot 86%, ssCabernet Franc 12% and ssCabernet Sauvignon 2%. It is adorned with a purple dress, dark and dense. The nose is fresh and delicious, taking us through a forest with aromas of humus, blackcurrant, black cherries, truffles, bark... On the palate, The Dominique 2008 demonstrated a beautiful volume and freshness. Tannins are soft, ripe and balanced, while the finish is silky and rich in delicious flavours.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    An unqualified sleeper of the vintage, the dark ruby/purple-tinged 2008 La Dominique reveals black olive, licorice, tobacco leaf, raspberry and kirsch liqueur characteristics. Deep and medium to full-bodied with supple tannins, an endearing texture and a lush, long, seamlessly constructed finish, this wine can be enjoyed now and over the next 10-12 years.
