Saint Emilion, Bordeaux
Sand with iron deposits.
Cabernet Franc 80%, Merlot 20%
LE DOME wine has two runs of green harvesting – at fruit set and veraison – ensuring that only the most perfect are sorted – firstly by bunch and then, after destemming, grape by grape. Only conveyors are used to transport the grapes and the wine is fermented in wooden vats after cold maceration. The wines undergo malolactic fermentation in new French oak, and are barrel-aged in an air-conditioned cellar at 18°C.
Maturation in new oak barrels
Deep ruby red with purple hues
The perfumes of Cabernet Franc shine in this richly structured wine. It has a sense of concentration as well as
generous fruitiness that is impressive and age worthy
This wine is bold in structure, rich and full bodied, yet all that power is well balanced and very elegant. It has a strikingly provocative bouquet of camphor, blueberry jam, violets, leather, white chocolate and fine spices.
Excellent accompaniment with pasta with red meaty sauces, red meat, stews and aged cheeses
Alcohol: 13.5% Vol.
