Château-La-Dominique Saint Emilion 2010
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
Wine Spectator Delivers a gorgeous note of crème de cassis, followed by dark plum, anise, blackberry coulis and blueberry reduction notes. A glorious display of fruit, with well-embedded charcoal and graphite accents that help the finish drive on with authority. Should age wonderfully. A very strong showing for this estate. Best from 2016 through 2030. 7,500 cases made.
Wine Enthusiast92-94 Ripe, juicy aromas, a wine that then offers sweet fruit, great flavors, a ripe wine with blackberry flavors and balanced tannins.
Wine AdvocateThe wine displays plenty of licorice, Christmas fruitcake, black currants, licorice, truffles and some espresso notes. Full-bodied, viscous and somewhat reminiscent of many 2009s, given its blast of fruit, glycerin and heady alcohol, this is a beautifully rich St.-Emilion for pleasure seekers. Don't discount its ageability, as I am sure it has two decades ahead of it.
