Domaine de BaronArques Limoux Le Chardonnay 2016
Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate: "An impressive Chardonnay from the limestone soils of Limoux, the 2016 Grand Vin Blanc could rival a decent Meursault. It's buttery and toasty up front, but it backs those oaky notes with plenty of plump pear and melon fruit. Medium-bodied, it's intense, concentrated and long, finishing with bright citrus and a lingering note of pencil shavings." May 2018
Winery: "The wine has a clear, glittering colour with a greenish tint. The refined and complex nose reveals pear and white blossom aromas mingled with elegant, judicious oak that brings vanilla, toast and spice notes. From a full and well-balanced attack, the mid-palate yields tree fruit and white pepper flavours together with touches of hawthorn set off by a succulent, smooth and opulent body, leading into an intensely flavoured and beautifully fresh finish."
