    Finally we have returned to the great La Dominiques made in 1989 and 1990. This has much of the style of the 1990, with supple tannin and loads of spicy fruitcake, licorice, cassis and kirsch-like notes that jump from this dense ruby/purple wine. Fat, fleshy and full-bodied, with beautiful richness, purity and length, this wine will be approachable in its youth yet last for two decades (just like the 1989 and 1990).

    The Wine Advocate

    Dark licorice, sweet fruits and ripe tannins. A wine that shows great fruits and freshness, while at the same time big, dark tannins.
    Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points

    Very deep ruby. Flamboyant nose loaded with superripe red fruits, almond flower and spicy clove. Enters smooth but dense, offering rich, ripe flavors of red cherry, black plum, minerals and white pepper. Sweet, well-balanced and attractive, this serious, very long wine finishes with an enticing hint of marzipan.
