"Probably the finest La Dominique made since the wonderful duo of 1989 and 1990, the explosively fruity, dense purple-hued 2010 offers notes of licorice, roasted herbs, truffles, black raspberries and blueberry liqueur. Full-bodied and unctuously textured with sweet tannin as well as good freshness and precision, it should drink well for 15-20 years. P. S. The final blend was 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc that achieved 14.5% natural alcohol."

"The La Dominique has a very ripe, toasty nose with espresso and a touch of dark chocolate, the oak rather evident at the moment. The palate is rich and decadent on the entry, sappy red-berried fruit, cassis and dark plum, good acidity on the finish, persistent and ambitious. This may well merit a higher score after bottling, as it is difficult to taste at the moment. I remain cautiously optimistic. Tasted April 2011."
