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.

'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.'
