Chateau La Dominique St Emilion 1998
16 May 2020
Along with Gazin 1998 and Malartic Lagravier 1998, the three bottles were served completely blind in a virtual tasting. I have reported my disappointment with Gazin 1998, while Malartic Lagravier 1998 was just an average wine with a lot of volatile acidity. La Dominique was obviously wine of the flight; pleasant and elegant smoke with small amount of ripe fruits on the bouquet. The body was an obvious right bank style, with very rounded and easy and friendly approach. I’d say it didn’t strike me as a 1998 at all. The style of La Dominique hardly changed, it was always the lighter styled wines regardless of the vintage. Nevertheless it’s good value and easy drinking.
