"It is amazing how well Maltus does whether the vintage provides great raw materials, or if he is confronted with more difficult challenges as he was in 2011. Drink this brilliant effort over the next 10-15 years."94 pts, Robert M. Parker, Jr.

"I’m not sure you can still call this the flagship wine of proprietor Jonathan Maltus given the other top wines he’s producing. Le Dome, which is dominated by an incredibly high percentage of Cabernet Franc (80%) and the balance Merlot (20%), is a special effort that must be tasted to be believed. The 2011 boasts gorgeously juicy blue, red and black fruits intermixed with floral and spice aromas. This supple, velvety-textured, opulent, medium to full-bodied, ethereal St.-Emilion is another stunning effort. It is amazing how well Maltus does whether the vintage provides great raw materials, or if he is confronted with more difficult challenges as he was in 2011. Drink this brilliant effort over the next 10-15 years." 94 pts, Robert M. Parker, Jr.

"Good bright ruby. Fresh raspberry, crushed stone, orange zest and white pepper on the nose, complemented by an intense note of violet. Juicy and penetrating but youthfully imploded, showing outstanding precision to its very pure flavors of raspberry, red cherry, white pepper and blood orange. This has the inner-palate aromatic lift of a first growth. Finishes with outstanding verve and rising, palate-staining tannins that remain this side of dry. If there was ever a cabernet franc vintage, 2011 is it, and Le Dome (80% cabernet franc!) has taken full advantage. But this wine needs at least a decade of cellaring to gain in plumpness and become a bit more user-friendly. Jonathan Maltus notes that the cabernet franc at Le Dome is exceptional, but admits that "on its own, it would make for an undrinkable wine--tight and hard as nails--or a wine that would take forever just to become approachable, never mind enjoyable; the merlot helps make it a little juicier and rounder." 92+ pts, Ian D'Agata, Vinous

"Sweet flavors of berry, minerals and dark chocolate follow through to a full body, with firm tannins and a long finish. Tight and solid."." 91-92 pts, James Suckling
