This favorably situated terroir sandwiched between Cheval Blanc and the Pomerol border where La Conseillante and l’Evangile are located has produced another excellent wine for proprietor Clement Fayat. The 2011 La Dominique boasts lots of deep raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with licorice and spice box notes, a medium-bodied mouthfeel, impressive concentration, and no herbaceousness whatsoever. This well-made St.-Emilion can be drunk early in life or cellared for 10-12 years. Drink: 2014-2026

Château La Dominique is located on the northwest of Saint-Emilion in a prestigious neighbourhood: Châvteau Cheval Blanc and Château Figeac flank the left side, and Château L’Evangile and Château La Conseillante rest on the Pomerol side. The 24 hectares of vineyard is planted with 86% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Since Clément Fayat acquired it in 1969, the vineyard has been entirely replanted and restructured.
