Domaine de Baron’arques

DESCRIPTION

A lovely, deep and glittering ruby red, the wine has a subtle and pleasant nose with a seductive aromatic complexity. On airing, scents of rose and peony might mingle with notes of blackberry, raspberry, and jammy fruit, enhanced by attractive toasted aromas. Defined, full, and well balanced, the palate reveals black fruit flavors with notes of roasted coffee and cocoa. The mid palate is dense but fresh with a fine tannic structure, while the long succulent finish displays pleasant coffee and spice notes.
