2014 Saint-Emilion, Grand Cru Classé from Bordeaux.

According to Chateau La Dominique «The 2014 La Dominique reproduces the ripeness and concentration of the good vintages, along preserving a good freshness and a silky tannic structure". The 2014 La Dominique is made of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc the starring grape varietal of this vintage. The freshness and silky yet lingering tannin structure (conferring frankness to the wine) are the representation of the perfect ripeness of the Cabernet Franc. This is a serious Saint-Emilion.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 La Dominique was tasted on numerous occasions (in fact, a total of five in total--nothing like a bit of rigor). This was a wine I wanted to like, but the fruit felt disjointed and a little green on four out of five occasions. Initially, I put that down to atmospheric pressure, but I discerned the same on all bottles apart from one. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine line of acidity on the entry, although again there was a jarring herbaceous tincture that persisted. This showed better out of barrel and indeed, the best bottle I tasted was actually at the London Union de Grand Cru tasting instead of those in Bordeaux. It was a perplexing showing, so I will give it another year and let's see what happens. Maybe I will taste it five times again!
