Wine Notes: why are Dominus wines famous? Because the winemaker Christian Moueix also makes the wines at Petrus, yes, that Petrus.

This is what James Suckling has to say about it: “An open and beautiful wine with green-olive and currant aromas and flavors. Some bark and earth, too, together with mushrooms, herbs, crushed stones and pomegranate. Medium to full body with round, creamy tannins and refined finish. Blood orange at the end. Crunchy. So drinkable now, but will age beautifully.”

Good to have it with: a juicy steak, nothing else.

The Winery: Dominus Estate

The Napanook vineyard is nestled in a natural amphitheater at the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains on the west side of the Napa Valley.  Fed by winter rains, its underground springs flow through ancient riverbeds and provide a natural supply of water to its grapevines, allowing them to develop deep roots.

It was here, in 1838, that George Yount planted Napa Valley’s very first vines.

The 2019 Dominus Napanook is born from the hands of one of the world’s best winemakers, Christain Moueix. Coupled with the talents of the french-born Moueix are the exquisitely grown grapes from the near-perfect 2018 vintage. Needless to say, there aren’t many wines like the 2019 Napanook that have this elite pedigree of champion winemaker, near-perfect vintage, and critical praise. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better drinking experience than the 2019 Napanook. Get yours while you still can.

Christian Moueix is one of the few producers to make classic wines in both the old and new worlds, Christian Moueix is President of Etablissements Jean-Pierre Moueix, the leading wine company of Bordeaux’s Right Bank, and owner of Dominus Estate in the Napa Valley.

A viticulturalist at heart, Christian Moueix’s tenure has been marked by the introduction of revolutionary vineyard techniques including, from 1973, crop-thinning as a means to improve grape quality. Today he produces wine from ten family chateaux including La Fleur Petrus, Trotanoy, Hosanna, Providence in Pomerol and, Belair-Monange and Magdelaine in Saint Emilion.

In 1982, Christian Moueix formed a partnership to produce Dominus from the historic Napanook Vineyard in Yountville. Adapting his French technical approach to Californian winemaking.
