Domaine de Baron'Arques Limoux 2015
So, ok, WOW. It’s a rare day to have a few cases of a Rothschild family wine to sell!! At WAY BELOW retail, from a winery dating back to the 17th century! Yes, indeed it is. This is STELLAR, pedigreed, fantastic Bordeaux-styled (Cabernet, Merlot, Franc, etc.), rich, powerful red from the Limoux region of France, about a 4 hour drive from Bordeaux, and don’t forget the amazing quality of the 2015 vintage in this mix as well!! OH, AND 92 POINTS!
The Rothschilds know their land, and their wine. Stylistically, the Baron’Arques is made the same as Mouton-Rothschild, but you have a gutsier feel here, a more LUSTY hand --- pure berries and black currants for days but we are talking about Earl Grey tea, anise, mocha, roasting coffee and a wild, long spicy finish that lingers for the rest of the day. Warm, inviting and balanced...this is a treat to drink --- but at our price, c’mon! A 92-point no-brainer, we think…!
We brought this in direct from the Domaine, and you will NOT see a finer price --- Bordeaux badassness in Southwest France! Very little to go around…while it lasts…!
Free ground shipping on 4 or more bottles.
“A suave, full-bodied red, showcasing a profile packed with cedar, ripe cherry and currant flavors. Rich touches of licorice and espresso are matched with notes of tea, graphite and dried herb on the long, structured finish. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2025.”
