Château la Dominique Saint Emilion Merlot Cabernet Franc Cabernet Sauvignon Bordeaux St. Emilion 1989

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A lovely bottle that offers up a full array of herb, creosote, plum cocoa, and coffee notes on both the nose and the palate. While the wine has lost some flesh since I last tried it it remains vibrant and round with an easy drinking balance yet traditional flavor profile that should please a broad range of consumers. 2009-2016 91pts

Opens nicely with it's minerally nose offering up typical notes of espresso foam and fertile soil marred slightly by a bit of shoe polish. Noticably oak spiced with lots of tart plum and cocoa. Big rich and round with it's inviting flavors of plum and cocoa couched in a soft, plump texture. While drinking well this bottle didn't come close to the heights achieved by previous bottles. 2007-2015

Ripe berry aromas. Light cherry and licorice and a bright acidity. Flavors of cola and berry and licorice and eucalyptus and dusty candy.

Meaty nose with hints of veal stock and blue cheese. Spicy rhubarb flavor with a touch of peaches.

A clearly licorice nose, that unfolds into an incredibly earthy, mineral wine. Very strong silex and other crisp glassy clear minerality.
