Dominus Estate Christian Moueix

Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Known for its complexity and balance, Dominus demonstrates the potential of a wine produced on exceptional terroir. Structured, seamless and perfectly integrated, Dominus is an elegant wine that improves with age. We recommend decanting the wine prior to serving, to allow it to develop its full potential, particularly when serving young dominus wines.
