2010 Le Dôme, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
Instantly appealing on the nose, this has notes of black fruit, spice and dark chocolate. The palate is concentrated, dense and glossy, with fragrant dark berry fruit and a subtle florality. Modern in style, but highly attractive, with a firm tannic framework provided for the soft fruit character. The characteristic freshness of the vintage comes through on the finish, giving this full-bodied wine a real sense of grace and poise. Extraordinary.
“This 1,000-case cuvee is always a candidate for having the highest percentage of Cabernet Franc (80%) of any wine from Bordeaux. The balance is Merlot. A magical wine, the dense purple-colored 2010 exhibits notes of incense, camphor, blueberries, blackberries and spring flowers. With sweet tannin, medium to full body and the high percentage of Cabernet Franc, it should put on additional weight and provide plenty of pleasure over 10-15 years. It is a stunning example of what heights Cabernet Franc can achieve in St.-Emilion.” 94-96, Robert Parker
