The 2021 La Dominique presents a focused nose of perfumed blackberry, raspberry, cedar and sous-bois scents with well-integrated oak. The well-balanced palate is fresh and crisp with fine-grained tannins. Silky-smooth leading into a very persistent, tensile finish. This continues La Dominique's upward trajectory. Excellent.

Blackberry, walnut and crushed-stone aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate with medium, round tannins and a juicy, pretty finish. Polished and fine for the vintage.

Georgina Hindle - Decanter

A dark nose with blackcurrant, bramble, dark chocolate and liquorice notes. Succulent and gently juicy on the palate, this has seamless, refined, silky tannins that fill the mouth and give just the right support to the fruit, while the minerality, liquorice, graphite and slate edging give more structure. It has tension, the flavours more linear than expansive, with a clarity and persistence from start to finish. A good effort and will reward with age. You really do feel the terroir at the end with a salinity and crushed stone grip. Creditable winemaking this vintage. Tasted twice. Julien Viaud consultant.

The 2021 La Dominique is a soft, easygoing wine. Red/purplish fruit, lavender, rose petal and sweet baking spices are pushed forward. The 2021 is not the last word on complexity, but it offers plenty of near and medium term appeal. More importantly, the 2021 is not trying to be something it can't be, which was at times the issue here in the past.

Winemakers Note

The estate Located northwest of Saint-Emilion, on the edge of the Pomerol appellation Pomerol, Château La Dominique has been cultivating its distinction for for many years. Château La Dominique is a wine estate since the 16th century, ideally located, directly adjacent to Châteaux Cheval Blanc, Figeac, l'Evangile and La Conseillante. This 25ha vineyard belongs to Clément Fayat since 1969. Today, the estate judiciously combines authenticity and modernity, notably with its avant-garde cellar signed by Jean Nouvel and its restaurant "La Terrasse Rouge". The 2021 vintage Yann Monties, Technical Director, tells you about the vintage https://bit.ly/LaDominique2021 Tasting notes Adorned with its brilliant deep red color, Château La Dominique combines the generosity of Saint-Emilion with the sap of Pomerol, the appellation bordering the estate. Characterized by aromas of ripe fruit, exalted by subtle notes of spices, the wine also seduces with its notes of truffle, licorice, pepper or undergrowth. Its frank attack begins a round and fleshy mouth, revealing silky and precise tannins. The long and ample finish leaves a pleasant sensation of of fullness ".
