Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru Classe
Alcohol 13,0 %
Ch. La Dominique has a wonderful terroir that is situated between Ch. Cheval Blanc and Ch. l’Evangile! The owner Clément Fayat (known from road building) has considerably invested in the vineyard and the cellars (designed by the famous architect Jean Nouvel). You can also visit the restaurant ‘La Terrasse Rouge’ with view on Ch. La Conseillante and Ch. Pétrus. Jean-Luc Thunevin (Ch. Valandraud) does the vinification to improve the quality. Since 2011, only 55% of the total production goes into the first wine (before it was 80%). This is better for the quality and the taste. Clément Fayat’s son Jean-Claude is now director. The planting of cabernet franc has been raised from 15% to 30%. This terroir is perfect for this vintage.
