Le Dôme, Saint Emilion Grand Cru

The LE DOME Single Vineyard is situated in close proximity to CHATEAU ANGELUS, Premier Grand Cru Classe. Its origins have their roots in the 'garage' movement of the 1990's. It is one of the three Saint Emilion Grand Crus that outgrew the movement to go on to challenge the 'Cru Classes' each year.

VINEYARD
LE DOME is a blend of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot. The vines are cropped low at 30 hl/ha - 4 bunches to the vine ensuring concentration. The soil/terroir is sand over crasse de fer (iron deposits). These deposits, coupled with the south facing slope, ensure amazing drainage, keeping the vines seeking moisture.

TECHNICAL
LE DOME has two to three runs of green harvesting — at fruit set and veraison — ensuring that only the most perfect are sorted —firstly by bunch and then, after destemming, grape by grape. Only conveyors are used to transport the grapes and the wine is fermented in wooden vats after extreme cold maceration. The wines undergo malolactic fermentation in new French oak, and are aged in an air-conditioned cellar at 18 °C.

ANYTHING UNUSUAL?

LE DOME is allegedly the biggest expression of Cabernet Franc of a Bordeaux wine – surpassing CHATEAU CHEVAL BLANC and LE DOME’s neighbour, CHATEAU ANGELUS. We started making the wine in 1996, two years after our arrival in Saint Emilion. With only sixteen years of history LE DOME competes with the greatest and most historic châteaux of the Appellation.

WHAT THEY SAY

100 POINTS, ROBERT PARKER, THE WINE ADVOCATE

"A full-bodied wine, but ethereal in its elegance and finesse, the wine has a strikingly provocative bouquet of camphor, blueberry jam, violets, new saddle leather, white chocolate and spice. Extremely full-bodied, but again, not showing any weighty fatigue or any type of aggressiveness, this wine has extraordinary purity and richness as well as a blockbuster finish of close to a minute, yet is so flawless, seamless and compelling, it's hard to believe the wine is this concentrated and rich. It will be interesting to see how it evolves, but it certainly can be drunk in 3-4 years and, I'm sure, cellared for as long as 25-35 years from now. There are 1,000 cases of this wine, which has one of the highest percentages of Cabernet Franc of any wine in Bordeaux (80%). The balance is Merlot. The 2009 from Le Dome flirted with perfection, but this wine swallows the entire scoring system, and rightfully so."

Vieux Château Mazerat, Saint Emilion Grand Cru

VIEUX CHATEAU MAZERAT is our latest purchase, and one that we’re really proud to own. In 1996 we bought the vineyard that is LE DOME from VIEUX CHATEAU MAZERAT, so to have the chance to purchase the mother-vineyard twelve years on was a great opportunity. It is for this reason that VIEUX CHATEAU MAZERAT’s label is the reverse of LE DOME’s – Ying and Yang.

VINEYARD

VIEUX CHATEAU MAZERAT is surrounded by CHATEAU CANON on three sides and by CHATEAU ANGELUS on the west. The Vineyard is stuck in the middle of ‘Cru Classé’ territory and faces CHATEAU BEAUSEJOUR DUFFAU LAGAROSSE. The vineyard is a mixture of 35% very old Cabernet Franc vines and 65% Merlot on clay over limestone. The vineyard yield is held down to 30 hectolitres per hectare – around four bunches to the vine.

TECHNICAL

VIEUX CHATEAU MAZERAT receives two to three runs of green harvesting – at fruit set and veraison – ensuring that only the most perfect handpicked berries get into the vats. On arrival at the winery the grapes are sorted – firstly by bunch and then, after destemming, grape by grape. Only conveyors are used to transport the grapes and the wine is fermented in wooden vats after extreme cold maceration. The wines undergo malolactic fermentation in new French oak, and are barrel-aged in an air-conditioned cellar at 18 °C.

ANYTHING UNUSUAL?

David Peppercorn, in his eighties book BORDEAUX, stated that if the then proprietor was to buy some oak barrels there would be no reason why VIEUX CHATEAU MAZERAT shouldn’t be a CRU CLASSE like all of its neighbours. We bought the oak barrels.

WHAT THEY SAY

97+ POINTS, ROBERT PARKER, THE WINE ADVOCATE 

"A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc from vines in clay over limestone planted in 1947, this wine exhibits loads of chalky minerality and a stunning nose of espresso, blackberry, mulberry and kirsch. Elegant, with superb definition and a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, this effort has put on considerable weight since I tasted it from barrel. Unfortunately, the production is under 1,500 cases. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2032."

Les Astéries, Saint Emilion Grand Cru

“Very focused with the sophistication that could only come from 80-year old vines. Wonderful.”

LES ASTERIES was the first of the micro-cuvée wines in our ‘Single Vineyard Series’ based on the côtes that hug the town of Saint Emilion – the land of the Saint Emilion Grand Crus Classés. The vines survived the frost of 1956 and date back over eighty years. Prior to our purchase they were a component of CHATEAU FONROQUE.

VINEYARD
Because the LES ASTERIES vineyard is old and planted in an epoch when pumps were manual, it is planted on what the French call a panache basis — a complete mixture of Merlot and Cabernet Franc (estimated 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc). Our forebears harvested all of the varieties together in order that the mix happened right at the beginning, and required less pumping! The soil/terroir is a very thin layer of clay over an extremely hard limestone. The cropping level is a very low; 30 hl/ha.

ANYTHING UNUSUAL?

LES ASTERIES exhibits a fantastic mineral quality which is in keeping with a belt of terroir that passes through from CHATEAUX BELAIR, CANON, and CLOS FOURTET. We named the wine LES ASTERIES after the hardest form of limestone – calcaire à astéries – on which the vineyard is situated. It is unlike any other wine that we make.

WHAT THEY SAY
 
98 POINTS, ROBERT PARKER, THE WINE ADVOCATE 

"From vines sitting on hard limestone, this wine is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that offers prodigious levels of extract, richness, complexity and overall harmony. A fabulous wine, with black fruits galore intermixed with a liqueur of crushed rocks and spring flowers, the wine has plenty of tannin and is best cellared over at least 4-5 years and consumed over the following two decades. This property, owned by Jonathan Maltus, is located 100 meters from his Le Carré and of course the nearby Clos Fourtet, which produced a perfect wine in 2009. Drink 2016-2036."
