Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Dominus Estate Bordeaux 2021

Dominus Estate Bordeaux 2021 presents a harmonious blend of complexity and elegance. On the nose, it offers an inviting bouquet of ripe blackberries, dark cherries, and cassis, interwoven with subtle hints of tobacco, cedar, and a touch of graphite. The palate is full-bodied yet remarkably balanced, showcasing layers of dark fruit flavors complemented by nuances of licorice, espresso, and earthy undertones. The tannins are firm yet refined, providing a silky texture that enhances the wine's depth and structure. A vibrant acidity adds freshness and prolongs the finish, leaving a lingering impression of spice and minerality.

Critic Ratings

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 100:
One of the legendary Dominus, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon is unquestionably in the same league as the 2018, 2016, 2015, 2013, 2010, and 1991, and to my mind, wine simply doesn't get any better. Sporting a dense purple hue as well as an incredible perfume of blackcurrants, crushed stone, cedar pencil, smoke tobacco, and baking spices, its rich, full-bodied, and voluptuously textured, with ripe yet building tannins. It reminds me slightly of the 2010 (maybe the 2013), and I suspect it will have a similar evolution. Hide bottles for 7-8 years, and it will evolve gracefully for 30+ years. Hats off to the team of Christian Moueix and director Tod Mostero.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 99:
This shows density on par with the ’18, with a core of cassis and plum notes still tucked away a bit behind a wall of structure, while singed toast and licorice hints peek in throughout. The youthfully backward aspect shows on the finish as well, where this throws a chunk of tannins to the fore. Very concentrated and with serious tension, this is a strapping young wine that shows what a warm and very dry vintage feels like. Think ’18/’13 combo here. Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc.

James Suckling Review - Rated 99:
The purity of the cabernet fruit is so enticing, with blackcurrant, rose petals, nettles and subtle graphite. Touches of terra cotta and licorice. Full-bodied with super integrated tannins that are wonderfully polished, giving a cashmere texture that is really luxurious to taste at this early stage. It is quenching and so delicious already. 95% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc. Needs three to four years to come around but already a joy to taste. Try after 2027.
