"Composed of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Le Dome has a drop dead gorgeous perfume of violets, black forest cake, rose hip and red jelly with touches of lavender, spice cake and earth. The palate is medium to full-bodied and super intense with super ripe, super fine-grained tannins, wonderful freshness and a very long perfumed, mineral-laced finish."

"Almost entirely Cabernet Franc, this single-vineyard wine has a wonderful perfumed character. Firm tannins are fully integrated into the fruit, giving a structured yet balanced feel. Ripe and elegant, it will age well. Drink from 2027."
"The LE DOME Single Vineyard is situated in close proximity to CHATEAU ANGELUS, Premier Grand Cru Classe. Its origins have their roots in the 'garage' movement of the 1990's. It is one of the three Saint Emilion Grand Crus that outgrew the movement to go on to challenge the 'Cru Classes' each year.
LE DOME is allegedly the biggest expression of Cabernet Franc of a Bordeaux wine – surpassing CHATEAU CHEVAL BLANC and LE DOME’s neighbour, CHATEAU ANGELUS. We started making the wine in 1996, two years after our arrival in Saint Emilion. With only sixteen years of history LE DOME competes with the greatest and most historic châteaux of the Appellation." - Winery
