Château-La-Dominique Saint Emilion 2000
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
Wine SpectatorA rich, beautiful wine. Dark color, with blackberry, smoky and coffee aromas. Full-bodied and very firm, with silky tannins and a caressing finish. Muscular. Best after 2007. 4,580 cases made.
Wine AdvocateTypically sexy, rich, loaded with fruit, and opulent, the dense purple-colored 2000 La Dominique may turn out to be this estate's finest wine since their wonderful duo of 1989 and 1990. It exhibits copious quantities of jammy blackberry and cassis fruit intertwined with licorice, cigar smoke, and spice box characteristics with a hint of herbs. Full-bodied and fleshy, with low acidity but high tannin, this substantial, voluptuously-textured, impressive St.-Emilion is already drinkable. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018.
