Wine Advocate | Rating: 88One of the most conspicuous over-achievers from Bordeaux's right bank appellations of St.-Emilion and Pomerol, La Dominique continues to fashion excellent wines that still represent fine value (although their prices are beginning to creep up). The 1994 La Dominique reveals some of the vintage's tell-tale astringent tannin and toughness, but it is loaded with creamy, ripe, black-raspberry and currant fruit. My instincts suggest a balance between fruit and tannin has been struck. The wine is dense, dark ruby/purple-colored, with a sweet smelling, oaky, earthy, smoky, blackcurrant-scented nose. This medium to full-bodied, ripe 1994 possesses admirable concentration, moderately high tannin, and excellent purity.Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 87Shows impressive ripeness for the vintage with a tobacco and berry character. Has a velvety texture, medium body and firm tannins.
