Domaine de Baron’arques 2007

The wine has an attractive, intense and brilliant ruby colour.

The complex and powerful nose opens on wild berries and jammy fruit, developing aromas of marzipan, red berry fruit and spice on airing.

A supple attack reveals a well-rounded tannic structure that supports ripe fruit flavours with a suggestion of toast.

The nicely balanced mid-palate is very full in the mouth, with fine acidity and close-knit, elegant tannins, building to a long and warm-hearted finish on refined notes of roasted coffee and spice.

2007 was within the average for the last five years in terms of both rainfall (505 mm) and temperature (13.5 °C on average).
A mild and very dry winter was followed by a mild and wet spring. Budbreak occurred early as a result, between the 22nd of March and the 5th of April.
Flowering started a week earlier than usual and took place from the 23rd of May to the 11th of June.
Temperatures remained moderate throughout the summer, with limited but regular rainfall.
Veraison began on the 25th of July for the earliest Merlots and ended on the 27th of August for the Grenache.
Excellent weather in September and October enabled the grapes to reach optimum maturity before picking.
