“A parcel of almost 100% Cabernet Franc gives this perfumed, classy wine. It's very structured, mineral-textured and darkly dense. Powerful and concentrated, this intense wine will develop into a major statement. Drink from 2019” 95 pts, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast

"The Cabernet Franc-based 2012 Le Dôme is the most reticent and inward of Jonathan Maltus's 2012s. Readers will find very little of the vintage's early appeal here.Instead, Le Dôme is a big, dramatic wine that is likely to require at least a few years in bottle to come together. A host of dark cherry, plum and smoke notes gradually emerge in the glass, but the 2012 needs time. The only question is how much. Still, I am quite drawn by this fabulous Saint-Emilion that touches Angelus on one side and Canon on the others." 94+, Antonio Galloni , Vinous

“This St.-Emilion (1,000 cases), which has a very high percentage of Cabernet Franc (80%, which is much higher than Cheval Blanc or Ausone) has always been the flagship wine of proprietor Jonathan Malthus. The 2012 has a dense ruby/purple color and plenty of raspberry and blueberry fruit intermixed with spring flower garden notes, which are followed by a medium-bodied wine with stunning elegance, purity and minerality. It is not the biggest wine, but the quality of the fruit, the complex nuances, and overall equilibrium make for a very special Bordeaux to drink over the next 15 or so years." 93 pts, Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate

"Intense aromas of ripe strawberries with cedar and mineral notes. This is a full-bodied red combining gentle tannins, good acidity and a clean finish. Balanced and pretty. 80% cabernet franc and the rest is merlot. Drink in 2018." 92, James Suckling
