The luxury cuvee of Chateau La Dominique can be overly ripe and oaky, but the 2001 appears to have gotten everything right. Bottled unfined and unfiltered after spending 18-22 months in 100% new oak, it exhibits ripe fig, blackberry, overripe cherry, and sweet licorice characteristics in a heady, full-bodied, opulent, fleshy concoction that is too sexy to resist. Its low acidity, supple tannin, and wealth of fruit as well as extract offer a smorgasbord of flavors. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. Jun 2004, www.robertparker.com
