The wine displays plenty of licorice, Christmas fruitcake, black currants, licorice, truffles and some espresso notes. Full-bodied, viscous and somewhat reminiscent of many 2009s, given its blast of fruit, glycerin and heady alcohol, this is a beautifully rich St.-Emilion for pleasure seekers. Don’t discount its ageability, as I am sure it has two decades ahead of it. ||The 2010 is a reassuringly great example of La Dominique after some less-than-stellar performances. This has always been one of the best terroirs on the Pomerol-St.-Emilion border, just adjacent to Cheval Blanc, and the 2010 could easily be the finest wine they have made since the 1989 and 1990. The final blend of 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc hit 14.5% natural alcohol. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

The La Dominique has a very ripe, toasty nose with espresso and a touch of dark chocolate, the oak rather evident at the moment. The palate is rich and decadent on the entry, sappy red-berried fruit, cassis and dark plum, good acidity on the finish, persistent and ambitious. This may well merit a higher score after bottling, as it is difficult to taste at the moment. I remain cautiously optimistic. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

This is super powerful, with amazing density and richness. Goes on for minutes. Full, yet reserved and focused. Best ever. jamessuckling.com

An extrovert, with enticing plum, anise and blackberry fruit and a long, supple finish. There's plenty of stuffing and grip, but this is velvety and nicely assimilated, with plenty in reserve. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Very dark, concentrated blackish crimson. Meaty and very ripe aromas. But there is some refreshing minerality under all the ripeness too. Racy and fine boned. Really a very attractive, complete wine. Almost Côte-Rôtie texture! Very successful. jancisrobinson.com

You have to go back to 1989 to find a vintage as fine as this. Elegant, lifted, crushed berry fruit aroma and flavour. Ripe, precise tannins. Long, fresh, persistent finish. Drink 2018-2035. James Lawther, decanter.com

This is a full bodied extracted St Emilion with opaque dark purple colour. The flavours are all about ripe fruit and richness. A bit of freshness in its character would be a big improvement. asianpalate.com
