Domaine de Baron'Arques (2015) 1Btl

Vintage
2014 began with a particularly mild winter: average temperatures in the first three months of the year were 2 °C higher than normal.
Budbreak came early as a result, starting on 17 March with the Syrah, 12 days earlier than in an average year, and ending on 1 April with the Cabernet Sauvignon.
After a wet and mild April, May and June were cool and dry.
Flowering took place between 2 and 13 June, two days later than in an average year.
July and August were rather cool, with regular rainfall.
Veraison started on 2 August with the Syrah and ended on 27 August with the Cabernet Franc, four days later on average than in a normal year.
September and October were hot and mostly dry, enabling the grapes to ripen fully and in excellent health.
The harvest took place in fine weather in October.

Tasting notes

The wine has a beautifully clear, dark and deep colour.
The highly refined nose reveals delicate ripe fruit aromas in which bilberry and blackberry mingle harmoniously with judicious oak. Airing adds spice and liquorice notes to this wide array of aromas.
After a fresh and precise attack, elegant tannins coat the palate with a dense and rich texture. Perfectly mature red fruit flavours are set off by attractive peppery and spicy notes, while the long and complex finish reveals attractively intense fruit.

 

Domaine de Baron'Arques Chardonnay (2015) 1 Btl

Soil profile
Good rainfall in winter helped to reconstitute water reserves in the soil. After a cold February, when average temperatures were 1.5 °C lower than in a normal year, March was mild.

Budbreak began on 27 March and continued at normal dates for the estate.
April and May were warm, with average temperatures 1 °C higher than normal. April was wet but May was dry, with only 12 mm of rain.
These conditions caused flowering to take place early, between 21 May and 2 June.
June and July were hot (average temperatures were 1.5 °C higher than normal), with the usual amount of rainfall. The grapes started to ripen early, on 22 July, ten days before the average veraison date.
Conditions in August and early September allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and in excellent health. The Chardonnay parcels were harvested in early September, ten days earlier than in an average year.

Tasting notes
Crystal clear with glittering highlights, the wine has an elegant and complex nose which reveals white blossom aromas, especially hawthorn, together with honey and coriander notes that bring succulence.
The full and smooth attack introduces an attractive mineral tension, while the mid-palate offers a dense and elegant texture on fresh butter, verbena, pear and lime flavours given additional complexity by well-integrated oak, leading into a long and lingering finish.

Tasting notes
The robe is brilliant straw gold. The effervescence shows great finesse with tiny bubbles in swirling columns. The expressive, fine and fresh nose opens on white flowers aromas (hawthorn) followed by an elegant fruity ambiance with notes of white peach, apricot, hints of citrus fruits and brioche.
Its texture is seductive, fresh and round, well balanced. The first aromas are magnified, joined by intense notes of pear compote and acacia honey.
The final is rich with lovely persistence.
Food Pairing
A wonderful, pleasant apéritif, but just as well deliciously accompagning a meal – particularly seafood and grilled fish.
