Oral transmission would like the name of the Castle to come from the island of Dominica in the Caribbean, an island which belonged to the triangular trade which was one of the riches of Bordeaux, a trade which so revolted the famous French writer Voltaire.

It is probably more judicious to refer to the map of Belleyme of 1785 which mentions the place called La Dominique, land where the Castle was built; In 1785, the vines belonged to a merchant from Libourne who sold them in 1788 to another merchant also from Libourne according to the royal notarial deeds of that time.

It is a classified Grand Cru of Saint-Emilion

The vineyard, whose average age of vines is 30 years, covers around twenty hectares planted for 81% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Soil: old gravel and sands with iron filth with a clay subsoil.

The annual production is around 90,000 bottles depending on the year with a very low yield, a guarantee of quality, of 4000 liters per hectare.

All the harvest is manual and the wine is aged in barrels for 70 to 80% depending on the year.
