The Domaine de Baronarques premium red wine is a blend of Bordeaux varieties (Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon) and Mediterranean varieties (Syrah, Malbec, Grenache) in a proportion which varies according to the vintage. The complex, Merlot-dominated blend gives the wine its richness, its refined aromas and flavours and its elegance. Domaine de Baronarques is a wine with ageing potential, but the combination of its terroir, the grape varieties used and Baron Philippe de Rothschild’s winemaking skills mean that it can be enjoyed on the fruit when young.
"Aromas of ripe fruit with fresh herbs and green walnuts that follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and decadent fruit. Delicious finish. A fascinating wine now that has evolved beautifully. Drink now." James Suckling
Looking at the 2010 Limoux, it’s a similar blend to the ’12 (51% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Syrah and 6% Malbec) and saw the same 12 months in 25% new French oak. Reminding me of a Washington State Bordeaux blend, this beauty gives up lots of sweet blackberry and black currant-like fruit intermixed with licorice, pencil shavings, toasted bread and spice. This all gives way to medium to full-bodied, ripe, nicely textured red that has a stacked mid-palate, high quality tannin and a great finish. It will have 10-12 years or more of longevity.
