Chateau La Dominique 2015

Bordeaux - Saint-Emilion - Red Chateau La Dominique Chateau La Dominique 2015 1425/15
  • Parker : 90-92
  • J. Robinson : 16.5

With a remarkable sanitary condition of the grape and grape-seed ripeness that had not been witnessed by the property since 2009 and 2010, the phenolic ripeness of the grapes is really good. The new Chateau La Dominique vat-room allows an even more gentle extraction for 2015. This result is noticeable on tasting. The harvest took place between September 18th and October 7th, starting with Merlot and finishing with the Cabernets. The 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon give this vintage a fine tannic structure and a vibrant nose. It shows an inky-tinted red colour. The nose is pure with delicious freshness on elegant fragrances of smashed blackberry and scrumptious blueberry. This Saint-Emilion bears a woody hint, perfectly contained by the olfactory and gustatory texture. This wine carries slightly tight yet perfectly extracted tannins, as well as a great phenolic ripeness. The strength of this wine puts him in the category of powerful yet elegant Saint-Emilions. It is a well-produced wine. 



Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
