Château Domeyne St Estephe 2009
From vineyards right next to Ch. Calon-Ségur, Ch. Domeyne is a new<br/>venture run by Claire Villars-Lurton (of Ch. Haut-Bages-Libéral). Only 5<br/>hectares of vines are used for this wine which is unusual for St Estèphe<br/>in that the blend is Merlot-dominant (60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon). The<br/>cooler climate in St Estèphe favoured Merlot in 2009 and this is a very<br/>unique wine. We were certainly impressed with its floral, cherry blossom nose<br/>reminiscent of Margaux, ripe concentrated cassis fruit and fine, grainy<br/>tannins.
