Notes
The 2001 Dominus is one of the most backward wines of the vintage. Readers who own it will have to be patient, as the 2001 needs a few years to still be at its best! Time in the glass brings out huge dark fruit along with hints of iron, gravel, spice and leather that add to its brooding, imposing personality. The 2001 is approachable with a few hours of air, but is very much a powerhouse. Boris Champy was the winemaker, while Jean-Claude Berrouet was the consulting winemaker

Dominus Estate

Dominus Estate

This is a Christian Moueix venture in California that was quick to achieve cult status. Its fame is such that demand far outweighs supply of the limited production Dominus wine. Its stablemate, Napanook, is made from the same vineyard and is a similar Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc/Petit Verdot blend that has marginally softer tannins and, although is designed for earlier drinking, will still cellar well for five to ten years.
