Tasting Notes

Vinous – 93

The 2008 Le Dome is turning into a really quite lovely Saint Emilion. Now at a decade old, this has arrived at a sweet spot, atypically quite classic in style. As I remarked in 2012 when I last tasted it, this Le Dome sports earthy tobacco-tinged red fruit on the nose, the iodine and cassis element having ebbed away. There is wonderful freshness here, frankly, not a million miles away from Figeac in style. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite sensual in style with a fine backbone, open and generous, with commendable complexity on the finish. It is a little abrupt on the finish but otherwise, Jonathan Maltus and his team oversaw a quite delicious Le Dome that is ageing with grace. (Tasted from a sample sent by Jonathan Maltus.)

Some rather odd aromas on this. Then polished fruit but there is something a bit odd about it. And it turns in on itself on the finish. [18/01/2012]

Robert Parker – 94

An opaque purple color is followed by notes of graphite, mulberries, blueberries and flowers. The 2008 is broad, savory and medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins, decent acidity, a textured, complex mouthfeel and no hard edges. It, too, should drink nicely for 10-15 years.

Anticipated maturity: 2011-2026
