  • The new tool has provided La Dominique with the means to its ambitions. Richly-coloured, intense, very ripe and full-bodied, this wine deserves better than its current classification. Note that a micro-vineyard has been created, Saint Domingue, planted exclusively with Merlot; the wines are produced with the same care as La Dominique. Of a very high standard, only 6,000 bottles are made a year.

    Chateau La Dominique was mentioned in Saint-Émilion at the end of the 17th century and has belonged to the Fayat family since 1969. Clément Fayat has now stepped down in favor of his son Jean-Claude. Benefitting from an excellent terroir of gravelly limestone and clay, Château La Dominique stands not far from Cheval Blanc and produces wines of excellent quality, thanks to the rigorous care that is applied in the vineyard and during vinification. The chateau inaugurated a new red and spectacular cellar designed by the architect Jean Nouvel. Clément Fayat, owner of the chateau, has also created the gourmet restaurant La Terrasse Rouge, where you can eat between Petrus, Gospel, Angelus and Cheval Blanc on the roof of the new building.

Tasting notes - Extract
(...) C'est un Saint-Emilion plus typique, ou plus "classique", comme on dit à Bordeaux, déployant un bouquet alléchant, précoce et ample de prune et de doux chêne vanillé. La bouche exprime tout en rondeur un caractère opulent, fruité, riche et exubérant, relativement bien corsé, ainsi qu'une finale longue et satinée. (...) Source: Robert Parker (4/91)
