The 2022 Le Dôme includes part of Les Asteries, picked between 14 to 28 September and matures in 80% new oak. Blackberry, liquorice and espresso on the nose, quite pure in style with just a little headiness. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit laced with graphite and black pepper. Quite dense, with more detail than the Vieux Château Mazerat on the slightly blurred finish, nevertheless, this constitutes a fine Le Dôme that should age with style. 15.1% alcohol.
Anticipated maturity: 2029-2060
