Powerful aroma of strawberries. The taste of Chateau de la Dominique Bordeaux goes away quick.
It's wine, and that's about it .

Matches quite well with cheese. Perfect wine to share with friends.
The colour was rather dark red. Aromas of pipe tobacco. Distinctive oxidation notes on the palate.

We drank it at a meeting with friends.
Typical opacity of a Château La Dominique. Toasty aromas. It was harsh in the mouth for a Saint-Emilion.
As I had it between meals I could not pair it.

Brownish red edges. The Saint-Emilion smells like cherry, licorice. It was not pleasant, it was oxidized.
A Château la Dominique that we had as a dessert of a good meal.
At the a friend's wedding.
