At the tasting, Domaine de Baronarques 2016 presents a beautiful deep shimmering color with garnet reflections. Intensely scented and freshness, the nose embellishes with fresh fruit while aeration highlights gourmet spicy and chocolate notes. Full of freshness, the attack on the palate reveals the structure of the vintage with ample and generous material with tannins of great finesse. The mid-palate retains a great aromatic sparkle, with hints of black fruit and liquorice. With harmony, the persistence of the finish leaves a pleasant aromatic sensation. A very beautiful red wine from Languedoc signed Baron Philippe de Rothschild in a great vintage.
