Polished and plush red with clove, dried lavender, and darkberry fruit. Full-bodied with firm, velvety and well-knit tannins. Lovely purity. Excellent length, too, with lingering spice notes. Lots to like. 80% cabernet franc and 20% merlot. ~94-95 James Suckling
Continuing fully 80% Cabernet Franc and vinified in Maltus's new winery, the 2021 Le Dome bursts with aromas of violets, blackberries, sweet soil tones, and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with lively acids and powdery tannins, this perfumed, charming wine is unusually seamless and integrated at this early stage. Does this vintage mark a stylistic evolution for this cuvée? ~92-94 WA
An expressive nose bursting with bramble fruits and perfumed nuances. Juicy and succulent but without overt or harsh acidity. This has depth and persistence, the creamy chalky tannins making their presence known and balancing the rich, concentrated fruits. The liveliness is there, with a brightness and vibrancy underpinning the wine, however, it's the chewy tannins, the intense fruit and the licorice are doing all the talking at the moment - the Cabernet Franc shining brightly in the glass. Feels extremely well worked with beautiful markers of the terroir and grapes. Excellent direction, this doesn’t stop once or drop in the midpalate. Classy stuff - and one of the wines from 2021 I'd like to own! Drinking Window 2025 - 2050 ~94 Decanter
The 2021 Le Dome is the most powerful of Jonathan Maltus's wines this year. Strong Cabernet Franc inflections are front and center. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, dried herbs, incense, and spice lent a notable aromatic presence. Naturally, the 2021 will need the better part of a decade to drink at its best, but it is quite impressive in this tasting. ~92-95 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
