En Primeur Château La Dominique will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Ideally situated northwest of the town of Saint- Émilion, bordering on the Pomerol appellation, La Dominique has 29 hectares of remarkable soil adjoining the region’s most famous vineyards: Cheval Blanc, Figeac, La Conseillante, and L’Evangile. Called ‘Durieu’ in the early 17th century, the property was acquired by the Glenne family and named ‘Dominique’ by Jacques and Isabeau Micheau in 1690. Cabernet Sauvignon is planted on an extension of Pomerol’s clay-gravel plateau in the northern part of the estate. Thanks to the warm gravel, the terroir there is ideally suited to this late-ripening variety, whereas the clay contributes density and concentration to the wine. In the southern part of the estate, the clay-limestone subsoil, typical of Saint- Émilion, is accompanied by blue clay that accounts for the wine’s tension, finesse, and minerality.
En Primeur pricing is per case as specified and excludes UK duty and VAT, which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond for delivery. Bonded storage is available. Onward delivery or transfer is not included and can be quoted for on request. Free delivery on orders over £100 does not apply to bonded or en primeur wines.
