Wine Advocate 100 points - The 2013 Dominus is magnificent. When it might be ready to drink is another question entirely. Today the flavors are remarkably primary and youthful. There is plenty of the dark blue/purplish fruit that is so typical of the year, along with a host of savory/floral/spice notes that add complexity. Even with all of its intensity, the 2013 remains remarkably fresh, with underlying veins of salinity that give the wines its unmistakable sense of energy.
Robert Parker 100 Points
The haunting, possibly perfect 2013 Dominus is composed of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Fashioned from tiny berries (the smallest Christian Moueix had seen from this vineyard), it possesses a velvety richness and seamlessness as well as profound notes of blueberries, blackberries and crème de cassis intermixed with hints of espresso bean, forest floor and high-quality unsmoked cigar tobacco. Full-bodied and opulent as well as exceptionally elegant and pure, fans of this estate will adore this sensational Dominus. Moreover, it should evolve for 25-30 or more years.
