La Dominique’s 29 hectares, lying in a prime location in the northwest of Saint-Emilion, bordering the Pomerol appellation, are distinguished by their magnificent terroir. Surrounded by prestigious châteaux like Cheval Blanc, Figeac, La Conseillante, L’Evangile, this Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé is an exceptional property which judiciously combines the authenticity of an 18th century residence with the modernity of a new winery, designed by the eminent architect Jean Nouvel.
