This magnificently situated parcel of old-vine Cabernet Franc continues to impress. It is intensely perfumed in smoky black fruits, displaying a dark, tight structure that leads through to finely textured tannins. The wine's acidity and succulent ripeness come through strongly. This is for long-term aging. - Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Le Dome is a little closed and broody to begin, unfurling to reveal a profound core of preserved plums, fruitcake, chocolate-covered cherries and mocha with nuances of star anise, Sichuan pepper and cardamom. The medium to full-bodied palate is beautifully perfumed with loads of floral notes emerging among the black fruits, framed by remarkably soft, velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and fragrant. Gorgeous wine! - Lisa Perrotti Brown, Wine Advocate

This is excellent, expertly judged and carefully extracted. It has its eye on long ageing but already the tannins are well defined and carefully brushed. I love the undercurrent of spice, edged with saffron and cinnamon alongside bitter black chocolate and tons of cassis. 80% new oak, 3.82pH. Harvest October 1 to 8. - Jane Anson, Decanter

The Cabernet Franc-dominated 2019 Le Dome comes from a single vineyard on the hillsides outside of Saint-Emilion, not far from Angelus. Offering a wonderful bouquet of dark black and blue fruits, spring flowers, truffle, and violets, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a terrific sense of purity, elegant, silky tannins, and a great finish. This elegant yet also concentrated and structured 2019 is going to have upfront appeal given its balance and quality of fruit yet should also evolve for 20-30 years or more. - Jeb Dunnick

Tight and tannic with lots of structure, yet it shows sweet, ripe fruit in the center palate. Really intense, fruity center palate here. Clearly up the the level of the 2016 and 2015. - James Suckling

The 2019 Le Dôme has an expressive bouquet that really gets a handle on the Cabernet Franc: blackberry, loamy soil, delicate pressed flowers and a touch of cedar coming through. It is more understated but perhaps it has a more sophisticated bouquet than what you might have found a decade ago. The palate is medium-bodied with freshness to the fore and touches of tobacco and graphite infuse the black fruit. Tannic towards the finish with a vivid spicy/cracked black pepper aftertaste that lingers in the mouth. Superb. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media
