LE DOME 2010 (6) 100 WA


LE DOME 2010 SAINT-ÉMILION. GRAND CRU CLASSÉ A FULL-BODIED WINE, BUT ETHEREAL IN ITS ELEGANCE AND FINESSE, THE WINE HAS A STRIKINGLY PROVOCATIVE BOUQUET OF CAMPHOR, BLUEBERRY JAM, VIOLETS, NEW SADDLE LEATHER, WHITE CHOCOLATE AND SPICE. EXTREMELY FULL-BODIED, BUT AGAIN, NOT SHOWING ANY WEIGHTY FATIGUE OR ANY TYPE OF AGGRESSIVENESS, THIS WINE HAS EXTRAORDINARY PURITY AND RICHNESS AS WELL AS A BLOCKBUSTER FINISH OF CLOSE TO A MINUTE, YET IS SO FLAWLESS, SEAMLESS AND COMPELLING, IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THE WINE IS THIS CONCENTRATED AND RICH. IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW IT EVOLVES, BUT IT CERTAINLY CAN BE DRUNK IN 3-4 YEARS AND, I’M SURE, CELLARED FOR AS LONG AS 25-35 YEARS FROM NOW. FEBRUARY 2013 100 WA 6 BTS. PER LOT $1,900 - $2,300




Price Realised: $2400
