Château La Dominique

Grand Cru Classé St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Mid to dark Crimson. Initially not giving much on the nose after decanting. After some time and a lot of swirling in the glass, aromas of black currant and McBaren’s Plum Cake pipe tobacco which I used to smoke at college many decades ago. Unusually for La Dominque this is 100% Merlot with zero Cabernet Franc. Palate is still lively and fresh with a long future ahead. Supple and persistent. La Dominique is surrounded by high profile neighbours with the best parcels bordered by Cheval Blanc. Other neighbours include Figeac, Conseillante and L’Evangile. Will leave the next for 2 or 3 years. — a month ago

Lovely domaine, I like your description (MCBaren’s Plum Cake pipe tobacco 🙃 we both stopped smoking, I guess... but still miss this)

Tried a few styles of pipe tobacco Peter back then but often came back to the McBarens Plum Cake - very aromatic.

Beautiful warm and deep fruit. Balsamico, black cherries and shoyu. The nose is uplifting with cassis and boysenberry. Tannins are totally integrated and the oak is subtle. Equilibrium explained. — a month ago

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

9 for the wow, this is still holding up. Fruit is muted but still identifiable raspberry and tertiary flavors of sandalwood. Fully integrated complex flavors and very smooth finish. Thanks Bob. — 3 months ago

Château Figeac

Petit-Figeac Red Blend 2016

In Roman times, the estate belonged to a family called Figeacus, main villa stood on the site of the present château. Traces of the original pipework remain. A blend of 36% Cab Sauv, (a typical Figeac usually higher % Cab), 23% Merlot & 41% Cab Franc with berry fruit aromas, spice and floral notes. 2nd wine shows blackberry and plum flavors with cigar spice & oak on soft dusty tannins. Full-bodied, long finish ending with fruit and earthy mineral. Good now cellar over next 5 years. — 7 months ago
