2010 Le Dôme, St-Émilion

SKU #1127961 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2010 Le Dôme is a powerhouse that shows concentration of this incredible vintage, yet has remarkable purity and elegance front and center. As always, the blend is mostly Cabernet Franc blended with around 20% Merlot and it offers a terrific floral quality in its blue fruits, graphite, crushed rock and violet aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, deep, and again, incredibly concentrated, with fine tannin and sound acidity, it stays weightless and graceful on the palate, and can be drunk anytime over the coming two-plus decades. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a perfumed wine, dominated by Cabernet Franc. Black fruits are layered with wood, dry tannins and a beautiful aromatic quality. The wine is deep and complex, built for the long term with its power, density and considerable elegance. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Le Dome is a blend of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot. Deep garnet colored, it opens with notions of kirsch, baked raspberries and mulberries with touches of oolong tea, cigar boxes and dried herbs. Full-bodied, it has firm, chewy tannins and a lively line defining the evolving dried berries and earthy layers, finishing on a stewed tea note. Already mature, drink it over the next 15-18 years. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A juicy and savory wine with tobacco, forest floor and chocolate character. Roses too. Lots of red fruits. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good bright, dark red. Knockout nose combines cassis, plum, violet, dark chocolate, licorice and mint. Pliant, layered and deep, with captivating sweetness to its dark berry and floral flavors. In a distinctly plush, creamy style but the wine's youthfully aggressive finish and serious ripe tannins suggests that it will be better for five to seven years of cellaring. Seriously rich wine with lovely purity and floral lift. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A burly, extracted style, with lots of roasted apple wood and mesquite flavors leading the way, followed by briary grip and slightly chewy plum, blackberry and black currant fruit flavors. Shows more heft than cut and drive, featuring scads of tobacco, ganache and loam on the finish. If cellaring can tame the chewy edges, this will become an impressive, modern-styled wine down the road. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)
