The 2015 Le Dôme offers smudged brambly red fruit mixed with cedar and leather, a little more forward than I would have expected. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, plenty of black cherry and white pepper notes with a slightly animally, yet persistent finish. This does improve in the glass so give it ample aeration. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2032
