Dominus 2010 Christian Moueix
Composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, the stunning, full-bodied 2010 Dominus boasts an exceptional perfume of hoisin sauce, licorice, underbrush, forest floor, plums, black currants and jammy cherries intertwined with hints of cedar, baking spices and oak. Full-bodied and voluptuously textured, the 2010 is on a slightly faster evolutionary track than the 2009 (somewhat of an anomaly for these two vintages). This exquisite as well as prodigious 2010 can be drunk young, but it should age effortlessly for 20-25 years. Bravo!
Winespectator / James Suckling (99)
JS: A cabernet-based red that?s all about the finish. Shows phenomenal character of caramelised orange, berries and lightly toasted oak. It?s also wonderfully structured, with great tannin, fruit, and acid balance.
