Domaine de Baron'Arques 2011
48% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Syrah, 10% Malbec. The wine is an attractive, bright garnet red. The nose opens on red fruit aromas combined with rose scents, going on to develop delicate notes of almond paste and blond tobacco. From a supple and velvety attack, the beautifully fresh mid-palate reveals refined and elegant tannins associated with an impression of density and fullness. Notes of toast, cocoa, vanilla and cedarwood combine with wild berry fruit flavours on the long and succulent finish.
