Le Dôme

About Le Dôme

Known as the benchmark estate of Jonathan Maltus, one of Bordeaux’s most successful winemakers, Le Dôme is situated on the Right Bank, just like all the other estates owned by Maltus. What is unique about Le Dôme is the high proportion of Cabernet Franc used. Its modest 3.5-hectare vineyard, located near Château Beau-Sejour Becot, Château Canon and Château Angélus, is planted to 80% Cabernet Franc, with the remaining 20% comprising of old Merlot vines planted in the 1950s. Those who have had the fortune to try the wines of Le Dôme would immediately note the concentration, achieved through three green harvests a year and further pruning to allow only 4 bunches of grapes per vine! Needless to say, wines of Le Dôme are not easy to come by.

Le Dome 2008 (12x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (96)

Made from 75% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot, the 2008 Le Dome comes from a tiny site not far from Angélus and is made by Jonathan Maltus. This beauty boasts a deep ruby, opaque color as well as a seductive, forward style its black and blue fruits, lavender, spring flowers, and forest floor aromas and flavors. Incredibly elegant on the palate, with medium to full body, sweet tannins, not a hard edge to be found, and a great finish, it’s fully mature today (and drinking beautifully!) but will cruise for another decade in cold cellars. It’s unquestionably one of the more elegant, silky 2008s in this report.

Le Dome 2009 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (99)

One of the most distinctive wines made in Bordeaux, Le Dome has one of the highest percentages of Cabernet Franc of any claret I can think of. Composed of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, it exhibits a certain delicacy and elegance (due to the Cabernet Franc component) in addition to resounding power, concentration, depth and multidimensional personality. Black/purple to the rim, it offers strikingly intense notes of spring flowers, raspberries, mulberries and wood smoke, medium to full body, sweet tannin and a cunning intensity and texture that suggest finesse and delicacy. However, the wine’s richness, length and lingering depth build incrementally in this exceptional St.-Emilion. It will be drinkable in 4-5 years and should age for two decades or more. This is Jonathan Malthus’ finest wine to date.

Wine Enthusiast (95)

94-96 Beautifully perfumed wine, profiting from the great Cabernet Franc in 2010, with almost silky tannins. The heady berries are surrounded with violets, giving a wine with great final freshness.

Le Dome 2011 (6x150cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

I’m not sure you can still call this the flagship wine of proprietor Jonathan Maltus given the other top wines he’s producing. Le Dome, which is dominated by an incredibly high percentage of Cabernet Franc (80%) and the balance Merlot (20%), is a special effort that must be tasted to be believed. The 2011 boasts gorgeously juicy blue, red and black fruits intermixed with floral and spice aromas. This supple, velvety-textured, opulent, medium to full-bodied, ethereal St.-Emilion is another stunning effort. It is amazing how well Maltus does whether the vintage provides great raw materials, or if he is confronted with more difficult challenges as he was in 2011. Drink this brilliant effort over the next 10-15 years.

Composed of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Le Dome has a drop dead gorgeous perfume of violets, black forest cake, rose hip and red jelly with touches of lavender, spice cake and earth. The palate is medium to full-bodied and super intense with super ripe, super fine-grained tannins, wonderful freshness and a very long perfumed, mineral-laced finish.

Le Dome 2018 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97-99)

Le Dome is from the JCP Maltus portfolio of skillfully crafted Saint-Émilion wines. Neil White is the head winemaker and Thomas Duclos is a consultant here. The 2018 Le Dome is composed of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, with a 3.82 pH and 14.3% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple colored, it is a little coy in the beginning, requiring considerable coaxing to allow fragrant earth, rose hip tea, preserved plums and raspberry pie notions to emerge, giving way to notes of pencil shavings, woodsmoke and camphor. Full-bodied, firm and finely grained, the profound palate is sparked by energetic mineral and red fruit notes, framed by firm, fine-grained tannins and just enough acidity to lift the very long, very fragrant finish.

Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (91(+?))

Deep red-ruby. Very ripe but fresh aromas of redcurrant, minerals, tobacco and coffee. Sweet, supple and deep, with rich, musky flavors of dark berries, chocolate, mocha and espresso. Youthfully muscular, slowly unfolding wine, with good primary fruit character. Finishes with firm but fine tannins that will require at least five or six years of additional bottle aging.
