Charm

When we succeed in making the wine we had hoped to make, there is a moment of silence. We listen to what it has to say to us, we are transported, we come back down to earth, and then we prolong the pleasure, savouring it slowly so as never to forget it.

"Château La Dominique has a brilliant red colour, combining the generosity of Saint Emilion and the richness of Pomerol – an appellation that borders on the estate. The bouquet is redolent of ripe fruit along with subtle notes of spice, truffle, liquorice, pepper, and forest floor. The wine starts out very straightforward, going on to show roundness, body, silky tannin, and great precision. It features a long, full aftertaste that leaves a very pleasant sensation of plenitude."
