La Dominique

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
Grand Cru Classé
The Fayat family
A winegrowing estate since the 16th century, Château La Dominique is ideally situated in the northwest part of the Saint-Emilion appellation.

Acquired in 1969 by Clément Fayat, the vineyard has been entirely renovated and constantly improved ever since.

Bordering directly on châteaux Cheval Blanc, Figeac, L’Évangile and
La Conseillante, this outstanding 29-hectare terroir consists of sand and clay where Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon reach full maturity to make great wine.

The vines are tended with meticulous care, and great attention is paid to winemaking and blending with help from the famous consultant Michel Rolland to produce deeply-coloured, generous, intense, opulent and silky wines in every vintage. In keeping with
La Dominique’s prestigious reputation, an innovative new cellar, both in terms of architecture and technical capabilities, was inaugurated in 2014. Designed by Jean Nouvel, this new building houses both a wine cellar and visitor reception area, and affords a magnificent view of the surrounding vineyards!
