Wine Specator: This is packed with lots of raspberry, cherry and boysenberry paste notes pushed by warm fruitcake and licorice. Integrated despite its heft, with a coating of sweet spice on the finish providing a nicely polished feel. 90 - 93 Points

Tasting Notes
James Suckling: A juicy red with walnut, berry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full and savory. Loads of fruit and chewy tannins. 94 -95 Points
Ratings
Jancis Robinson: Mid crimson. Bloody flavours and with round satin tannins. Quite a statement! Just a bit thicker than perfection. I wonder how this will age? Dangerous!? Drink 2024-2034 17- Points
Awards
Wine Advocate: The 2015 Le Dôme is a blend of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot picked on October 2 and 6. It has a clean and precise bouquet, tightly wound at first, gently warming up, developing more delineation and focus. This might be a more understated Le Dôme compared to recent years, but you might argue more sophisticated. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive density, a vein of dark chocolate on the entry that is rapidly overtaken by layers of lightly spiced black fruit. The finish is tightly wound at the moment, but it will open by the time of bottling. What I like here is the fineness of the tannin, something not always exuded by Mathus' top cuvée. It simply expresses the joys of Cabernet Franc and it should age nicely over the next 5-20 years. 94 - 96 Points
Other Notes
Le Dome is globally loved and the 2015 has huge potential, however, only 1,000 cases were made. Le Dome also has the privilege of possessing the highest percentage of Cabernet Franc of any leading Bordeaux wine, 80%, with the balance made up of Merlot.
