2009 Moueix Dominus

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2009
Appellation: Napa

The Moueix family are as close to royalty as one gets in Bordeaux. Owners of Petrus, Trotanoy, La Fleur Petrus, and a legion of other heavyweight estates, they are the Kings of Bordeaux’s Right Bank. Not content with reigning in Bordeaux though, they were also one of the first French winemaking families to buy land in California and bring their expertise to Napa. In the late 1960s, Christian Moueix, son of the company’s founding father, J-P, travelled to California to study, only returning home in 1970 to manage the family’s great chateaux. Longing to return to the West Coast though, he did so in 1981, discovering that the legendary Napanook Vineyard was for sale. As this special piece of land was responsible for some of the greatest wines to be made in California during in the 1940s and 1950s it had become intrinsically linked with Hollywood’s Golden Age; he was smitten. So taking all of his experience garnered from managing the Moueix family’s titanic properties, Christian applied his understanding and deep emotional connection with the Napa Valley to the stunning Napanook estate, giving life to a new Grand Vin, christened ‘Dominus’. The results are wines that perfectly bridge the gap between the generosity and density of Napa’s best fruit and the structure, precision, and age-worthiness of top Bordeaux. It is considered rightly amongst Napa’s ‘1st Growth’ estates and the most ‘French’ stylistically. As Moueix wrote on the label: “Napa terroir but with a Bordeaux spirit.”

Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

Wine Advocate October, 2013

The 2009 Dominus saw about 40% new oak compared to the 20% for Napanook. A seamless classic, it offers a symphony of red and black currants, Asian plum sauce, lavender, and underbrush. Sweet Christmas fruitcake characteristics emerge from this magnificent Dominus that finished at 14.5% natural alcohol (slightly higher than usual). The seamless integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol, the brilliant length and overall compelling complexity and richness make it one of the great classics from this historic estate. It should drink well for 20-25 years.

Wine Advocate December, 2012

The 2009 Dominus has closed down quite a bit since I last tasted it. Today, all of the glorious fruit of the vintage is hiding behind a serious wall of tannin. The 2009 still possesses gorgeous inner perfume and plenty of sweetness, but little of the sexiness that will emerge over time. From time to time, the utter genius of the 2009 shows a glimpse of its potential. There is little doubt the 2009 will be a jewel once it awakens from what might very well be a long slumber. This is another wine that begs for patience. The 2009 is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. (97+)
