Has green olive, licorice and cut-wood aromas, with
plenty of plum and crushed berry character. Full-bodied, with round,
polished tannins and a beautiful finish. A real crowd-pleaser.
Best after '12.
Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
A Cheval Blanc look-alike, this cuvee (which includes
a high percentage of Cabernet Franc) boasts an ethereal nose of
raspberries, menthol, spring flowers, and hints of cedar as well
as new oak. Full-bodied, exceptionally fresh, and noble, this is
a complex, classic, distinctive wine that should drink well in 3-4
years, and last for two decades. It is the finest Le Dome yet made,
but sadly, there are only 1,000 cases.
Drink: '11 - '28.
