Finally we have returned to the great La Dominiques made in 1989 and 1990. This has much of the style of the 1990, with supple tannin and loads of spicy fruitcake, licorice, cassis and kirsch-like notes that jump from this dense ruby/purple wine. Fat, fleshy and full-bodied, with beautiful richness, purity and length, this wine will be approachable in its youth yet last for two decades (just like the 1989 and 1990).

Tasted at the Association de Crus Classé tasting at Grand Pontet. Ripe exotic fruit on the nose although there are some underlying vegetal notes, though not as prominent as other wines. The palate is medium-bodied, rather abrasive tannin, coca-tinged black fruits towards the astringent finish. It is just trying too hard. Tasted March 2010.

Sweet berry and plum, with wild cherry. Full and velvety. Long finish. Clear and focused fruit. Best in years?

Even darker crimson than most. Interesting, quite subtle nose. Then great sweetness on the palate and considerable dryness on the finish. A quite extreme wine that is absolutely on the edge for me as to whether it will all settle down or not. I hereby give it the benefit of the doubt as obviously the makers have taken real risks on ripeness. Some mineral savour. Muscular chewiness. Pretty glamorous and certainly extreme.

Fresh and focused. Pure, lifted aromas. Finely worked tannins. La Dominique back at the top of its game. Drink 2015-2025
