2012 La Dominique

The 2012 La Dominique is a fantastic St Emilion that may have slipped under-the-radar during the scramble of en primeur, but that is now performing superbly from bottle and well worth snapping up. Just rated at an impressive 94 points by Antonio Galloni this is a very firm buy.


Galloni is clearly a fan of how well this is now showing, calling it “beautifully expressive” with “so much to to like” and gives a score that puts it on a par with fellow St Emilions including the likes of La Mondotte and Troplong Mondot.


He is not alone in his opinion. Parker’s bottle rating for this “gorgeous, hedonistic… sensational” St Emilion of 93 points shows just how well it is developing and marks it out as one of the value picks of the region.


A lovely wine now and with at least a decade and a half ahead, this is a great addition to the cellar:

This is a gorgeous, hedonistic, yet complex La Dominique with an inky purple color, oodles of blue, red and black fruits, sweet tannin, a generous, opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long finish. This 2012 is sensational and further evidence of the rebound of La Dominique after a few years of mediocrity. It is a sleeper of the vintage to be drunk over the next 15 years. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015



“Above all else, the 2012 La Dominique speaks to precision. Beautifully expressive in the glass, the 2012 offers a compelling mélange of plum, lavender, mint, licorice and purplish fruits. Sweet floral and spiced notes add yet another dimension on the deep, pure finish. There is so much to like here. The 2012 is 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Michel Rolland and Jean-Philippe Fort consult.” (Jan 2016) www.vinous.com Drink 2018-2032
