9.1

Drank 10/9/19

Classic right bank nose opens with plums, earth, some cassis, and just a hint of cedar. Velvety black fruit leather, and a touch of green from the cab franc, with medium, well integrated tannins lend support to the medium+ body. A well made wine from a good producer, in an average vintage.

Love this wine made by JC Berrouet of Petrus fame. Raspberry, bittersweet cocoa, earthy, cassis, superb minerality. Lovely, refined nose with a hint of rusticity. Palate is so ultra refined with plum and raspberry fruit. Ripe, precise taninns and great purity. Very very clean. Super juicy and structured like a classical Bordeaux. Good now better in 5 years. — 12 days ago

Nose of black fruit, sweet pipe tobacco, and purple flowers. Sweet black fruit, tobacco, and medium, well integrated tannins on the palate. Long finish. An earlier drinking style, but could also age for many years.
Decanted 3 hours.

This was another 01 that is drinking well, still youthful, showing more black fruits than red with earth, leather, tobacco & mineral. — 9 days ago

Le Dôme Saint-Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Too bad I can't score 1/2 points! And both the 2008 and 2010 about 2 years ago. The 2008 seemed to be very shut down, with the 2010 being the polar opposite. This one was definitely more along the 2010 side of things, and wish I could give this one a 94.5. This is St Emilion wine with a tuxedo. Rounded structure, kind of becomes more brambly and tobacco driven towards the finish. Very polished, very open. And with its huge structure, you can hold this one for a while. I think I have one more 2008 left, but I would trade it in a heartbeat for one of these. — 19 days ago
