    Château La Dominique 2016 : a structured Saint-Émilion

    Château La Dominique is a Grand Cru Classé of the Saint-Émilion appellation. The 35-year-old vineyard of 23 hectares is planted on soils made of old sand upon clay and clay brown soils. The aging of the wine is carried out for 16 months, in 60% new oak. The La Dominique 2016 blend is composed of 80% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Deep red in color, Château La Dominique 2016 reveals an intense nose with aromas of black berries (mulberry) and small red berries, combined with mineral notes (oyster shells), due to the terroir of the property. This wine offers fairly bold tannins, all fresh and spicy. The finish of the Château La Dominique 2016 presents a great structure and reveals a beautiful salinity.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2016 La Dominique is composed of 80% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. It was aged for 16 months in 60% new oak and 20% one-year-old oak from four different coopers and 20% in tanks. Deep garnet-purple colored, it features black cherry compote, blackberry pie, sautéed herbs and tree bark with wafts of tobacco and a touch of underbrush. The palate is medium to full-bodied, very firm and structured with a lively lift to the finish. About 6,666 cases produced.
