Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 La Dominique is a blend of 13% Cabernet Franc and 87% Merlot matured in 50% new oak, the first vintage when the massale selection of Cabernet was included in the blend and the first vinified in the new facilities. It has a straightforward bouquet with blackcurrant pastille and a touch of blueberry, a touch of vanilla in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly rigid tannin, high toned black fruit for the vintage, with a simple, rather one-dimensional finish. It is not a bad Saint Emilion, but there is a flatness here that it cannot shake off.
