New Release – Dominus, Napanook and Othello
13 October 2021

We’re very pleased to announce the release Christian Moueix’s 2018 vintage at Dominus Estate; three wines of irresistible elegance that sing the praises of a truly gorgeous Napa Valley vintage. As one of the original Frenchman-does-California labels, Dominus retains a special place in the annals of Napa’s recent history. Given it’s Pomerol connections it would be easy to sum it up as a slice of the Old World in Napa, but in reality, this Moueix’s project is so much more than that. The Moueix vision, around dry farming, organics and sustainability proved to be an early harbinger of a widespread valley movement towards wines of elegance and place, grown from vines with a natural inclination to balance. Christian’s commitment to dry farming was particularly far sighted. In the face of increasingly regular drought cycles, those vineyards with the naturally deep root system that dry farming encourages are better equipped to cope with arid conditions. They tend to find natural ripeness earlier allowing for wines with phenolic ripeness alongside freshness and of course (relatively) moderate alcohol levels. The resulting fruit, handled gently in the winery, is what has gained Dominus so many fans around the world in the past three decades.    Read More
