Parker über: Dominus

-- Parker: A brilliant showing for Christian Moueix’s well-known Napanook Vineyard, the 2001 Dominus is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot. A classic in the making, this is a flawless, seamless example of elegant, complex Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that possesses a Bordeaux-like personality. This gorgeous, sexy, opulent, dense ruby/purple-colored wine reveals sweet caramel, mocha, creme de cassis and kirsch notes intermixed with a hint of espresso roast as well as underbrush. Ripe, long and full-bodied with well-integrated tannin, acidity, alcohol and wood, this prodigious 2001 is drinkable now and over the next 25+ years given this estate’s longevity track record. A virtually perfect wine, it is one of the most complex 2001s at present. 98/100


International Wine Report über: Dominus

-- International Wine Report: Christian Moueix has crafted a sensational wine in 2001, which is composed of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot. After 15 years of bottle age this looks be enduring time, as it is still quite vigorous, offering gorgeous aromas of dark cherries and cassis, woven together with tobacco, spices and espresso nuances. On the palate this is full-bodied and beautifully structured with polished tannins and wonderful depth as it expands across the palate into the long, supple, spice-tinged finish. While there is no doubt this is simply delicious, readers considering approaching this shouldn't jump to a hasty decision, as there is still a long future ahead for this age-worthy wine.

Dominus Moueix

Christian Moueix, charismatischer, legendärer und genialer Mitbesitzer von Chateau Petrus in Pomerol, wurde durch das Joint Venture von Mouton Rothschild und Mondavi (Opus One) inspiriert. Sein Dominus ist seit Jahren einer der Top-Weine Californiens, meistens sogar besser als der Opus One.
