LE DÔME is allegedly the biggest expression of Cabernet Franc of a Bordeaux wine – surpassing CHATEAU CHEVAL BLANC and LE DÔME’s neighbour, CHATEAU ANGELUS. We started making the wine in 1996, two years after our arrival in Saint-Emilion. With only twenty five years of history LE DÔME competes with the greatest and most historic châteaux of the Appellation.
VIEUX CHATEAU MAZERAT is our latest purchase, and one that we’re really proud to own. In 1996 we bought the vineyard that is LE DOME from VIEUX CHATEAU MAZERAT, so to have the chance to purchase the mother-vineyard twelve years on was a great opportunity. It is for this reason that VIEUX CHATEAU MAZERAT’s label is the reverse of LE DOME’s – Ying and Yang.
