RP99 "As for the 1991, 6,500 cases were produced of this potentially perfect wine. While this vintage of Dominus contains no Merlot in the blend, every time I taste it I am reminded of a great vintage of Petrus such as 1982, 1989 or 1990. Although different, the 1991 Dominus possesses extraordinary intensity, remarkable opulence, and amazing fruit extraction, all welded to a full-bodied structure. The wine's sensational purity and inner-core of depth must be tasted to be believed. The 1991 will be approachable young because of its sweet tannin, yet it exhibits the potential to last for 25 years. Perhaps 1994 will rival it, but for now, the 1991 is unquestionably the greatest Dominus, as well as a potential legend in the making." RP Jun 1995

LP99 "A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, the 1991 Dominus has a deep garnet-brick color. What a perfume! Glorious scents of stewed plums, dried cherries, and rose oil flow gently from the glass, followed by suggestions of star anise, sandalwood, cigar box, and iron ore. The medium-bodied palate is graceful and incredibly light on its feet, with layers of intense cherry and raspberry preserves accented by loads of exotic spice nuances, textured with silky tannins, finishing long, lively, and fantastically fragrant. So pure!" LPB for TWI Mar 2023

"While this vintage of Dominus contains no Merlot in the blend, every time I taste it I am reminded of a great vintage of Petrus such as 1982, 1989 or 1990. Christian Moueix and his winemaking team at Dominus continue to refine and improve Dominus. The most noticeable change has been the sweeter, ripe, softer type of tannin in vintages such as 1989, 1990, 1991, and 1992. Additionally, the element of Cabernet Franc has become more important in certain vintages, with the 1992 boasting 22% Cabernet Franc. The increased amount of new oak utilized has also been a valuable component for complementing the rich, backward, tannic Bordeaux style of wine made at Dominus." RP Dec 1994
