Library Large Formats from Dominus Estate

The wines of Dominus Estate are crafted by renowned winemaker Christian Moueix of Chateau Petrus and Chateau Trotanoy in Pomerol. After studying enology at UC Davis in the late 1960s, Moueix returned to California in the early eighties and acquired a stake in the historic Napanook vineyard in Yountville. Originally planted in 1836, Napanook is home to some of the oldest Cabernet vines in Napa Valley, and to this day, it serves as the basis for Dominus. Estate Wine Brokers is thrilled to present a selection of rare large formats from Dominus Estate that includes a trio of 'perfect' 100 point wines, each listed at the lowest retail price in the country:

Dominus Estate Napa Valley 2010 3000ml - $1,995
100 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "Composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, the stunning, full-bodied 2010 Dominus boasts an exceptional perfume of hoisin sauce, licorice, underbrush, forest floor, plums, black currants and jammy cherries intertwined with hints of cedar, baking spices and oak. Full-bodied and voluptuously textured, the 2010 is on a slightly faster evolutionary track than the 2009 (somewhat of an anomaly for these two vintages). This exquisite as well as prodigious 2010 can be drunk young, but it should age effortlessly for 20-25 years. Bravo! (RP)" (10/2013)

Dominus Estate Napa Valley 2012 6000ml - $2,750
98+ Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The exuberance and drama in the stunning nose of the dense plum-colored 2012 Dominus offers up notes of Asian spice, ripe, black currants, kirsch, tobacco leaf and Christmas fruitcake. It is full-bodied and opulent, with no hard edges, a seamless integration of acidity, wood and tannin and a density and richness that are built to go on for 25-30 years. (RP)" (10/2015)

Dominus Estate Napa Valley 2013 3000ml - $2,099
100 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The 2013 Dominus is, to my way of thinking, one of the most profound wines Christian Moueix has yet made in his rather brilliant winemaking history, both in France and in Napa Valley. This wine, with very low yields of only 3,500 cases and a final blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc, offers up notes of cedar wood, forest floor, loamy soil and oodles of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. Very opaque purple in color, super-pure and intense, this wine has low acidity, but ripe, noticeable tannins. This is a 30- to 40-year wine and a profound effort from this famous vineyard in Yountville. Drink it over the next 40+ years. (RP)" (10/2015)

Dominus Estate Napa Valley 2015 1500ml - $589
100 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate “Bottled in July 2017 and composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the Dominus 2015 Proprietary Red Wine leaps from the glass with notes of fresh wild blueberries, crushed blackberries and black currant juice with touches of wild thyme, underbrush, iron ore and aniseed with wafts of lavender and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has incredible energy and vivacity, with the firm, pixelated tannins and lively backbone skillfully framing the muscular fruit, finishing with wonderful length and depth. (LPB)” (10/2017)
