2015 Le Dôme, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1440647 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Le Dome has a drop dead gorgeous perfume of violets, black forest cake, rose hip and red jelly with touches of lavender, spice cake and earth. The palate is medium to full-bodied and super intense with super ripe, super fine-grained tannins, wonderful freshness and a very long perfumed, mineral-laced finish. (LPB) 98+ Inner quote mark (4/2018)

98 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Almost entirely Cabernet Franc, this single-vineyard wine has a wonderful perfumed character. Firm tannins are fully integrated into the fruit, giving a structured yet balanced feel. Ripe and elegant, it will age well. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very suave and attractively cast aromas of violets, blueberries, plums and dark chocolate with spicy, cedary notes and slate-like nuances. The palate’s velvety, fleshy and smooth with dark berries, chocolate and roasted-coffee flavors set in ribbon-like, silky tannins. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Jonathan Maltus' 2015 Le Dôme is so much more expressive from bottle than it was from barrel. Packed and intense to the core, the 2015 speaks with a confident tone. Black cherry, chocolate, torrefaction, leather, rose petal and exotic spice pulse with energy in this vibrant, super-polished Cabernet Franc–driven Saint-Émilion. Le Dôme is the most vibrant and complex wine in this superb range from Maltus. The blend is 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A solid version, in the extracted style, with plum and fig paste flavors laced with notes of ganache, warm tobacco and licorice. Offers a toasty finish, but the fruit pushes through well enough, showing a nice swath of loam. A little cellaring will stretch this out further. (JM, Web Only-2018) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

92 points Neal Martin: "The 2015 Le Dôme offers smudged brambly red fruit mixed with cedar and leather, a little more forward than I would have expected. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, plenty of black cherry and white pepper notes with a slightly animally, yet persistent finish. This does improve in the glass so give it ample aeration. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting." (Vinous, 7/2019)
