"94 out of 100…I’m not sure you can still call this the flagship wine of proprietor Jonathan Maltus given the other top wines he’s producing. Le Dome, which is dominated by an incredibly high percentage of Cabernet Franc (80%) and the balance Merlot (20%), is a special effort that must be tasted to be believed. The 2011 boasts gorgeously juicy blue, red and black fruits intermixed with floral and spice aromas. This supple, velvety-textured, opulent, medium to full-bodied, ethereal St.-Emilion is another stunning effort. It is amazing how well Maltus does whether the vintage provides great raw materials, or if he is confronted with more difficult challenges as he was in 2011. Drink this brilliant effort over the next 10-15 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate
"94 out of 100...Wow. This is really well done for the vintage, with blackberry, dark-chocolate and mineral character. Its full-bodied, with very integrated tannins and a long, long finish. It shows wonderful length. Try it in 2019. - James Suckling
"91 out of 100...A fruit-driven version, with lots of boysenberry, plum skin and crushed blackberry notes pumping along. Loads of charcoal and tar course underneath, holding sway through the finish. This offers a ripe structure and substantial fruit. Best from 2015 through 2023. 1,000 cases made. - James Molesworth
