2006 La Dominique
Tasted at the château, the 2006 La Dominique has an attractive bouquet with notes of roasted herbs and cloves infusing the red berry fruit, and yes, just a hint of the Japanese nori that Robert Parker remarked upon in his note several years ago. The aromatics seem fully mature. The palate is medium-bodied with chunky ripe black fruit, grainy in texture, perhaps just a little rustic but at least it is fresh. There is just a touch of dryness entering on the ferrous finish, therefore I would be inclined to drink this over the next 8-10 years. Tasted May 2016.
