Chateau Dominique

Classification

Grand Cru Classe
Legend has it that Chateau La Dominique was given it`s name by a wealthy merchant who purchased the estate in the 18th Century, having made his fortune in the Caribbean he named Chateau La Dominique after his favourite Island there. Since 1969 the estate has been under the ownership of Clement Fayat who has invested greatly in the vineyard development, reconstruction & technical advancement of the wine estate.

The wines of Chateau La Dominique are some of the finest of the Saint Emilion appellation; the average age of the vines is 31 years providing the grapes with great depth of flavour, juice is vinified by plot in optimal thermoregulated conditions before 15-18 months aging in new oak barrels & esteemed oenologist Michel Rolland is on hand as a vastly experienced advisor to the estate.

Deep, rich red in colour the nose is brimming with dark berry & orchard fruits such as plum, blackberry & cherry coupled with savoury herbal notes & hints of cedar & coffee. Thes

e flavours develop & open up on the medium bodied palate which has good weight & tannic structure. A classic Saint Emilion Bordeaux,, satisfying to the last drop.

This Merlot based Bordeaux is fantastic paired with beef & lamb dishes such as fillet of beef in a red wine sauce or herbed rack of lamb. Also a great match for game birds such as pheasant or grouse, roast chicken, Coq au Vin & grilled stuffed mushrooms.
