Christian Moueix Dominus 2016

Pure, balanced and complex. Minimal inter- vention and restraint throughout the process of grape berry selection, fermentation
and aging preserve the character of the fruit. The resulting wines, with a tremendous
potential for aging, convey the very personality of this historic vineyard.
Known for its complexity and balance, Dominus demonstrates the potential of a wine
produced on exceptional terroir. Structured, seamless and perfectly integrated, Dominus is an elegant wine that improves with age.

Dominus Estate, Yountville, California, was established in 1983 by Christian Moueix.
Situated on the famed Napanook vineyard, it was, in the 1940’s and 1950’s, the source
of fruit for some of the finest Napa Valley wines. In fact, the vineyard’s history can
be traced back to Napa Valley’s beginnings, when in 1838 George Yount, for whom
the town of Yountville was named, first planted grapevines there. Today, this historic
vineyard produces three wines: Dominus, its flagship, Napanook, and Othello.
Christian Moueix chose the name ‘Dominus’ (‘lord of the estate’ in Latin) to under- score his longstanding commitment to the land. Rooted in values of quality, steward- ship, tradition and innovation, the Dominus Estate team shares a vision of producing
distinctive wines that are expressive of this singular terroir.
The vineyard is entirely dry-farmed, allowing the vines to draw deeply on the land’s
unique geology. The viticulture and winemaking are undertaken meticulously, with
the objective of producing wines that are pure, balanced and complex. Minimal inter- vention and restraint throughout the process of grape berry selection, fermentation
and aging preserve the character of the fruit. The resulting wines, with a tremendous
potential for aging, convey the very personality of this historic vineyard.
Known for its complexity and balance, Dominus demonstrates the potential of a wine
produced on exceptional terroir. Structured, seamless and perfectly integrated, Dominus is an elegant wine that improves with age.
In 1997, a winery designed by the Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron was completed. Due to strict enforcement of Napa county regulations, it is closed to the public.
To celebrate the 30th vintage of Dominus Estate, the 2013 label dons a special portrait of Christian Moueix by South African artist William Kentridge. The 2013 Domi- nus recalls the ‘portrait series’ of the earliest vintages (1983-1990), when noted artists
depicted Christian Moueix on the labels.
