Second wine of Château La Dominique, Relais de la Dominique is delicate and smooth with an expressive nose of red fruits, black fruits and spices. Very pleasant on the palate with gentle tannin.
French still red wine from Saint Emilion Bordeaux France, made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Located in Saint Emilion, next to the notorious Château Cheval Blanc, the estate ‘La Dominique’ was named after the Caribbean island in the 18th century. After successive ownerships, Château la Dominique was finally purchased by the Fayat family in 1969. They hired famous oenologist Michel Rolland as a consultant back then and, in 2013, invested in a new cellar in order to deliver optimal maturation potential for their wines. View our selection.
