Saint Domingue, another marvel from the same owner as Saint Dominique in Saint-Emilion. Situated next to Cheval Blanc on the edge of the Pomerol. This Saint Emilion village has all the class of a Grand Cru. Deep purple in colour. Intense aromas of stewed black berries and creme de cassis. Soft Oaky tones with hints of roasted coffee, caramel and vanilla. Powerful and rounded on the palate, with a creamy finish.

Reviews:

"This wine is very well-crafted, with soft, round tannins and lots of milk chocolate, berry and vanilla character. Long finish. A new Right Bank estate to watch." -Rated 92, Wine Spectator

"Undoubtedly the most impressive Saint-Domingue I have tasted, this wine tastes like proprietor Clement Fayat's La Dominique on steroids, opaque purple-colored with a glorious nose of creme de cassis, vanilla, chocolate, and espresso. Once past the ostentatious aromatics, this chewy, low-acid, plump, full-bodied wine is dense, rich, with great intensity, purity, and plenty of power. This is obviously a modern-styled St.-Emilion, but a huge crowd-pleaser and a wine capable of lasting 12-15 more years, possibly longer. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2017." -Rated 92, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
