Cult Oakville Wine from Dominus Owner & Winemaker 


Notes From The Winemaker:

In 2017 the Ulysses wine label has been slightly modified, indicating the Oakville provenance, and bearing the signature of Christian Moueix.

Ulysses is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of  Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Tasting Notes:

With black tea leaf and brioche, Ulysses 2017 delivers dense layer so deep cherry, balsamic, peat, forest berries and fresh walnut, woven through a finely grained texture, and a lingering warm cacao powder finish.

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points, #94 Top 100 Of 2020 - James Suckling:
"Extremely aromatic with crushed berries, currants, flowers and hints of uncured tobacco leaf. Carnations. Medium to full body and extremely fine tannins that are firm and polished. Vertical tannins draw you down. Some blanched-walnut character to the blue fruit. Fresh and clean at the finish. Release in spring 2021. So beautiful to drink now."

95 Points - Wine Spectator

"This is packed with the ripe, vivid fruit of the vintage, sporting intense cassis, raspberry and blackberry flavors allied to prodigious structure in the form of licorice root and roasted apple wood notes. Rippling with muscle through the finish, but without being domineering, showing focus and detail. Like a Richard Serra, this is seemingly immense at first glance, but steadily pulls you in with its details. Best from 2022 through 2038. 1,000 cases made." — James Molesworth
