Chateau La Dominique
It is a rich merchant who made fortune in the Caribbean islands, which, in the eighteenth century, acquires the domain and thus engraves his name in the history of the domain. In 1969 Clément Fayat, an entrepreneur in construction and since then owner of several other vineyards in Bordeaux, acquires this large property.
Enjoying the reputation of the appellation Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, which is surrounded by prestigious castles (Cheval Blanc, L'Evangile, La Conseillante) borders the Pomerol appellation. This Château, already mentioned in the first editions of "Bordeaux and its Wines" (Feret), has a beautiful sandy-gravel soil, carried by a clay terroir, west of the Saint-Emilion appellation.
The vines are 40 years of age and older, occupying an area of 23 hectares, with a density of 5,700 vines / ha. The grape varieties are predominantly made up of Merlot (86%), 12% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.
