About

97

"A seamless on-song Bordeaux style blend, yet with much more ripeness and juicy fruit gum character. Monumental depth of character which is enhanced by well-managed oak that is adroitly integrated with the silky tannins to give a fresh, elegant finish. Very complete, nuanced, long and beautifully balanced. Pitch-perfect now but still lots of life ahead. Excellent release. "

Product Description:

Since its acquisition in 1998 by Baron Phillipe de Rothschild and her two sons, Phillipe Serreys de Rothschild and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild. Domaine de Baronarques has set the standard for one of France's oldest winegrowing regions. The estate is planted with Bordeaux varieties (Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon) and Mediterranean varieties (Syrah and Malbec). A complex blend gives the wine its elegance, its fruit and its refined aromas and flavours. Through the quality of its terroir and its wines, Domaine de Baronarques takes its rightful place alongside the family's other illustrious estates.
