Le Dome 2011 St. Emilion Grand Cru
Jonathan Maltus, the dynamic producer of Le Dome is a Bordeaux newcomer who fervently believes that great terroir is essential to making great wine. The grapes for Le Dome come from his single vineyard on the hillside adjacent to Chateau L’Angelus. The vines were planted in the 1950’s and undergo three green harvests to limit the already naturally low yields. Le Dome represents the highest manifestation of Cabernet Franc in any top level Bordeaux wine at 75%. Blended with 25% Merlot, the hand selected grapes are double triaged before crushing. In short no expense is spared to produce this extraordinary wine. And of course the most exceptional thing about Le Dome is that a mere 400 cases are produced, which when compared to First Growths like Ausone (1,500 cases) and Cheval Blanc (5,000 cases), is microscopic. James Suckling scored this 94 points saying "Wow. This is really well done for the vintage, with blackberry, dark-chocolate and mineral character. It's full-bodied, with very integrated tannins and a long, long finish. It shows wonderful length. Try it in 2019.
