It's a banner week when you can chug down two outstanding Grand Cru Saint-Emilions, the '03 Grand Pontet and this '96 La Dominique. The La Dominique is in its youthful prime, with impeccable balance and enough tannin to hang in there another decade. Top-tier perfume of dark cherries, cassis, tobacco, charcoal, lead pencil, and a touch of white flowers. Medium bodied and elegant in the mouth with all components in harmony. - HK 2005-10-28
