Domaine de Baronarques 2008

Domaine de Baronarques is a very old estate, dating back at least to the 17th Century, when it was called Domaine de Lambert. At the time, the estate belonged to the Abbey of Saint-Polycarpe, a village near Limoux in the Aude department of Southern France. After changing hands several times, the estate was sold to Michel Tisseyre in 1875. The Tisseyre family extended the vineyard – it covered 48 hectares. In 2003, Domaine de Baronarques benefited from a fortunate conjunction of circumstances: the wine proved to be of very high quality and the Domaine was awarded the AOC Limoux rouge appellation, newly created by the Institut National des Appellations d’Origine (INAO). Domaine de Baronarques could take its rightful place alongside the family’s other estates, including the illustrious Château Mouton Rothschild.

"An attractive, dark and deep garnet red, the wine has an intense and precise nose that opens on delicate aromas of spices, roses and plums macerated in spirits. Some roasted, toasted notes appear with airing. From a supple and highly refined attack, the mid-palate rapidly emerges on smooth, patrician tannins enhanced by a youthful freshness. The fruit, already there in the background, comes into its own, giving a harmonious, long and opulent finish."

Region

Languedoc-Roussillon Wine

France’s ancient Languedoc-Roussillon wine region is also its most dynamic. Sweeping from Provence to the Spanish border, the Languedoc-Roussillon features craggy mountains, rolling hills, salt flats, and broad plains, harbouring vineyard sites and soils of unrivalled diversity. Warm, dry conditions, cooling Mediterranean breezes, and luminous sunshine give intensely-flavoured grapes. If this weren’t enough, cheap land has attracted a new generation of winemakers, bringing investment, expertise and a new appreciation of the Languedoc-Roussillon’s unique terroir.
