Chateau la Dom St Emilion Grand Cru 2009
"Aromas of black tea, blackberries, blueberries and coffee bean, follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Lovely mouth feel. Very well done...94" JamesSuckling.com 2/12 "The 2009, which is inky blue/purple to the rim, is a final blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot at 14% natural alcohol. The wine has a beautiful blueberry-scented nose with hints of acacia flowers, licorice, graphite and some subtle charcoal and background oak. Clearly a modern style of Margaux, it is pure, seamless, full-bodied and opulent, and the high glycerin and silky texture of 2009 are brilliantly displayed in this wine...94" WA 2/12 "Bright red-ruby. Sexy aromas of coffee, nuts and charry oak. Supple, sweet and chocolately. Nicely concentrated, broad and round, showing a lush texture and a good chewy texture. Finishes with sweet tannins and a lingering element of smoky oak. Lovely claret...92" IWC 07/12...92" IWC 07/12

Editorial Reviews for Chateau la Dom St Emilion Grand Cru
Deep, elegant and complex on the nose with a sophisticated blend of nutty oak, fresh fruits smoky herbs all in balance. Relatively filling in the mouth and supple though with plenty of stuffing, the fruit is fresh but a bit tight, though this does show some nice fresh berry and floral inner mouth perfumes, and dry red fruit on the firm finish which shows great length. Very successful. 93pts
Oaky and slightly jammy on the nose with assertive nutty tones and black currant/black berry fruit – woody sweetness upfront, a bit lean yet showing an elegance on the midpalate with nicely ripe tannins and vaguely herbaceous fruit, slightly creamy black currant fruit, licorice toned finish of modest length (89-90)
The nose is fresh and delicate with fine leather, fresh vibrant flowers and bright red berries all tinged with subtle cedar. The mouthfeel is light and fresh, lithe with excellent integration and a soft juicy texture that supports sweet red berried fruit that finishes with just a hint of astringency that works to give the wine a touch of mouth grab. Classic margaux in all it's perfumed, medium bodied, red fruited glory. 2007-2015

Wood, spice and fruit nose. Spice, wood, cigar and alluring fruit. Great attack. Complex with a great finish. Almost a 4!
Color, this wine has a ruby red color. Nose, this is indeed a modern old world wine! After many hours of decanting, this wine smells like a fruit bomb to a cretin extent. There are a lot of of black fruits coming through, blueberries are dominating, some cassis, floral aromas, some heat coming through, some earthiness and dirt. Midpalate, charcoaly flavors are vibrant here, some minimality coming through, really a modern Bordeaux, blueberries still going on. Finish, it proves that this wine is a new world! I am not getting any acidity. There are firm layered tannins going on, nice texture, nice complexity, blueberries are still dancing on my palate. I am still feeling this wine after 30 seconds of sipping it. This is a well made and balanced bottle of wine. I am 93 on this effort. Bottled at 13.5%. Happy drinking!

This is a full-bodied wine that shows signs of bitter extraction. It has weight certainly along with signs of dark-plum fruits to go with the firm tannins. A complex aftertaste promises well. Wine Enthusiast.
Big bold and fruity this shows plenty of rich blackberry-juice flavor and fine tannins. The fruit and tannins are well balanced with a juicy character on the finish. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast.
A blend of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot that tips the scales at 14% natural alcohol, the 2011 Lascombes is another knock-out effort. (Michel Rolland is the consultant.) Made in a more modern style with plenty of toasty oak i... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Lascombes 3000ml
Big, bold and fruity, this shows plenty of rich blackberry-juice flavor and fine tannins. The fruit and tannins are well balanced, with a juicy character on the finish. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Lascombes 1500ml
The wine hits all cylinders in 2010. The average alcohol for the bottled wine is 14%. It has a gorgeously sweet nose of creme de cassis spring flowers subtle barbecue smoke and charcoal followed by full body beautiful intensity great purity stature and length. The influence of any oak is minimal despite the fact that 90% new French oak was used. Needless to say this is an example of modern-styled winemaking at it s finest and arguments that such wines will not age well do not represent
55% merlot 40% cabernet sauvignon and 5% petit verdot. Beautifully perfumed aromas of blackberry huckleberry and plum mix with hints of forest floor black truffle and a touch of espresso.Exceptionally soft and approachable the lush palate shows broad integrated tannins that lend structure to the purple fruit. Showing less acidity than many of its vintage peers this is almost hedonistic in its youthful approachability. Give it a couple of years to settle down and then enjoy over the next 2
50% merlot 44% cabernet sauvignon 5% petit verdot and 1% cabernet franc. Aged 18 months in 50% new oak. Chateau Lascombes now utilizes an optical sorting table which eliminates any berry that is not entirely up to par. The seductive and complex nose offers a beautiful mix of violet chocolate allspice cinnamon and beautifully ripe blackberry. Delicious blackberry and boysenberry emerge on the round palate with a touch of vanilla. This silky smooth wine will benefit from at least 5 years of aging and will age well for over 2 decades. Beautiful wine! Tasted three times (once at the Chateau). Alex Lallos.
