The 2015 Le Dôme, 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, shows good energy and saline tension that is such a signature of Cabernet Franc-based wines. At the same time, there is plenty of the signature Maltus richness and intensity here. Le Dôme is the most distinctive wine in the range today. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Le Dôme is a blend of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot picked on October 2 and 6. It has a clean and precise bouquet, tightly wound at first, gently warming up, developing more delineation and focus. This might be a more understated Le Dôme compared to recent years, but you might argue more sophisticated. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive density, a vein of dark chocolate on the entry that is rapidly overtaken by layers of lightly spiced black fruit. The finish is tightly wound at the moment, but it will open by the time of bottling. What I like here is the fineness of the tannin, something not always exuded by Mathus' top cuvée. It simply expresses the joys of Cabernet Franc and it should age nicely over the next 5-20 years. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2021-2045

A juicy red with walnut, berry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full and savory. Loads of fruit and chewy tannins. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

This is packed with lots of raspberry, cherry and boysenberry paste notes pushed by warm fruitcake and licorice. Integrated despite its heft, with a coating of sweet spice on the finish providing a nicely polished feel. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Mid crimson. Bloody flavours and with round satin tannins. Quite a statement! Just a bit thicker than perfection. I wonder how this will age? Dangerous!? Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2034

80% Cabernet Franc. Fresh, floral and perfumed. A long way from its original (concentrated, oaky) style. Lovely, refined, velvety texture and carefully matted tannins. Freshness and persistence on the finish. Elegance and harmony. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2023-2032

There are very few wines in Bordeaux with as much Cabernet Franc as Le Dôme, and the freshness and leafy, violet-tinged perfume are gloriously apparent here. Grassy and elegant (despite the high alcohol), it’s got plenty of tannin and fruit weight but finishes with remarkable zip. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2035
