Sold Out - Perfection is rarely reached but motivates the crème de la crème of winemakers around the world. Like him or not, Robert Parker revolutionised the way people write about wine with his 100 point system accessible to everyone. Yes, you can argue that regions like Burgundy are low-balled on occasion but 1 thing is for certain, 100 point wines are monumental. With a fresh “100 RP” stamp, Dominus 2013 joins the hall of fame full of wines like 1929 Petrus, 1989 Haut Brion, 1985 Sassicaia and 2001 Yquem. With Big Bob gradually winding down, the door to the elite 100RP will be closed for good sooner or later. Here’s your chance to get in.
Robert Parker: 100
"The 2013 Dominus is, to my way of thinking, one of the most profound wines Christian Moueix has yet made in his rather brilliant winemaking history, both in France and in Napa Valley. This wine, with very low yields of only 3,500 cases and a final blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc, offers up notes of cedar wood, forest floor, loamy soil and oodles of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. Very opaque purple in colour, super-pure and intense, this wine has low acidity, but ripe, noticeable tannins. This is a 30- to 40-year wine and a profound effort from this famous vineyard in Yountville. Drink it over the next 40+ years."
Antonio Galloni: 100
"The 2013 Dominus overwhelms all the senses with its magnificent overall balance and towering intensity. Deep and nearly impenetrable in the glass, the 2013 boasts off the charts dry extract and overall power. Violets, smoke, black cherries, menthol, incense, crème de cassis and dark spices are some of the many signatures that take shape in the glass. Even better in bottle than it was in barrel, the 2013 is utterly magnificent. This is a remarkably vivid, nuanced wine considering its sheer size."
