Chateau La Dominique Saint Emilion is a typical, with notes of black fruits, well ripe, cassis, liquorice. On the palate it shows is fun, full-bodied with tannins that become more fused with the years. Very good value for money, it will be perfect between 6 and 10 years.
A bit rustic, but concentrated. Intense aromas of wet earth and bark, with a hint of fruit. Full-bodied, with full velvety tannins and a lovely, ripe berry and black olive flavor on the finish.
While 1995 is also a tannic vintage for La Dominique, there is sweeter fruit as well as more ripeness and intensity (at least at present) in the wine's moderately intense nose of vanillin, blackberry and raspberry fruit. In the mouth, there is good sweetness, medium to full body, moderate tannin, and a layered, rich, classic tasting profile.
