May Edition 2016 on Bordeaux 2015
BORDEAUX - La grande année ! 2015, Millésime d’exception
I believe this is the first time that we’ve featured in this publication, which is, perhaps, the most prestigious in France. LE DOME ranks at the top of Saint Emilion with only four other wines ahead – CHATEAUX AUSONE, CHEVAL BLANC, LA GAFFELIERE and CLOS FOURTET - J.M.
LE DOME, Saint Emilion Grand Cru, 2015
80% Cabernet Franc is the originality of this ex-garage wine which in recent vintages has reached a brilliant classicism. The vineyard is next to L’Angelus vineyard. The 2015 is extremely intense, extra-silky and already express subtil aromas, a great finesse in the texture and an extraordinary intensity of flavours.
