Chateau La Dominique Saint Emilion 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Brand||Chateau La Dominique|
This rich, balanced wine comes from an estate that is performing in top gear. It is a generous wine, showing the luscious fruit of the vintage along with a good structure of dense tannins and layers of wood aging. Drink this ripe wine from 2024.
This has an intense beam of raspberry, red currant and blackberry confiture flavors, carried by a racy graphite edge from start to finish. Light mesquite and iron notes streak through the finish, which ripples with energy. Very solid. Best from 2020 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Composed of 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged for 16 months in 60% new and 40% one-year-old barrels, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 La Dominique is earthy on the nose with notions of red and black currants, blueberry compote, spice cake and potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and opulent with beautiful purity, it's soft and seductive in the mouth, finishing long and perfumed, displaying wonderful energy.
