Tasting Notes


A full-bodied wine, but ethereal in its elegance and finesse, the wine has a strikingly provocative bouquet of camphor, blueberry jam, violets, new saddle leather, white chocolate and spice. Extremely full-bodied, but again, not showing any weighty fatigue or any type of aggressiveness, this wine has extraordinary purity and richness as well as a blockbuster finish of close to a minute, yet is so flawless, seamless and compelling, it's hard to believe the wine is this concentrated and rich. It will be interesting to see how it evolves, but it certainly can be drunk in 3-4 years and, I'm sure, cellared for as long as 25-35 years from now.


The 2010 Le Dôme is a powerhouse that shows concentration of this incredible vintage, yet has remarkable purity and elegance front and center. As always, the blend is mostly Cabernet Franc blended with around 20% Merlot and it offers a terrific floral quality in its blue fruits, graphite, crushed rock and violet aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, deep, and again, incredibly concentrated, with fine tannin and sound acidity, it stays weightless and graceful on the palate, and can be drunk anytime over the coming two-plus decades.

The Winery

Le Dôme

Le Dôme (St. Emilion) is owned by Jonathan Maltus of Château Teyssier and is a tiny 3.5 hectare single vineyard production with the predominant grape varieta being Cabernet Franc (75%) and the rest Merlot (25%). The vines are over 65 years old atop the sandy loam soil and the tiny production is made in a very deliberate manner which shows a world-class wine year after year. Because of the small production and high demand, these wines are hard to obtain, so if these wines are in-stock. Do not hesitate to stock up.
