La Dominique

About La Dominique

La Dominique has an interesting history that starts in the 1700s - with the property taking its name from the Caribbean island upon which the first owner earned a fortune: Dominique.

 

Since 1969, La Dominique has been owned by the Fayat family, and things really started to happen when Jean-Luc Thunevin came on board to consult in 2007. The vineyard is predominantly Merlot, with Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon playing supporting roles. In all, 23 hectares are classified as Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé. The terroir is deep gravel over clay with some sand in the soil. The vineyard is planted on sloping hillsides, which rise up to a height of 44 metres.

 

The terroir is similar to Château Cheval Blanc, and many critics have noted the same refined style of the wine at both estates. La Dominique also boasts some old vines – some planted back in 1967, and 5 hectares are now farmed biodynamically.

La Dominique 2020 (24x37.5cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (95-97)

The 2020 Château La Dominique is a normal blend of 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. It's certainly in line with the 2018 and 2019, and if anything, can be thought of as a hypothetical mix of the two vintages, offering more precision and focus than the 2018 and more voluptuousness than the ethereal 2019. Gorgeous cassis and black raspberry fruits along with notes of bouquet garni, graphite, and chocolate define the bouquet, and it has some classic salty mineral nuances imparted by limestone, yet still brings an almost Pomerol-like mid-palate and density. With integrated tannins, wonderful freshness, and a great finish, I'd be thrilled to have bottles in the cellar.
