    This is incredibly well integrated with ripe fruit and super fine tannins that melt into the wine. Precise and beautifully ripe fruit. - James Suckling

    This estate has a terrific terroir and lies next to Cheval Blanc and Ripeau. Their 2018 Château La Dominique offers a medium to full-bodied, beautifully elegant and refined style to go with complex aromatics of black raspberries, cassis, spring flowers, and exotic spices. It’s not the biggest or richest wine out there, but it has class, elegance, and purity. This beautiful wine will drink nicely in its youth due to its balance, but will also age gracefully. The blend is 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon that hit 14.5% alcohol and a pH of 3.65. - Jeb Dunnuck

    This wine doesn't always get the balance right for me, but in 2018 La Dominique manages to convey power and intensity without a trace of overly sweet fruit or oak. It's well balanced, elegant and fresh but with power, concentration and ageing potential. A hugely impressive effort, helped by a slight austerity to the tannins through the finish.

    The estate is located right next to Cheval Blanc and is currently in the middle of an ambitious replanting programme that will put the emphasis on Cabernet Franc. Michel Rolland consults- Jane Anson, Decanter

    Very juicy and fruit-driven, with mouthfilling currant paste, boysenberry compote and loganberry notes bouncing through. The bramble-edged finish needs a bit of taming, but the purity and length are appealing. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

    The 2018 La Dominique is a racy, pliant wine. Sweet spice, mocha, dried flowers and menthol infuse this succulent, expressive Saint-Émilion. Even with all of its obvious concentration, the 2018 retains terrific freshness and poise, not to mention tons of character. Tasted two times.- Antonio Galloni

    Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 La Dominique is quite cedary to begin, with truffles and fungi wafts over a core of baked plums, Morello cherries and boysenberries plus tree bark scents. Full, concentrated and packed with black fruit, it has rounded tannins and just enough freshness to lift the finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
