Domaine de Baronarques
Domaine de Baronarques is owned by the Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and of her two sons, Philippe Sereys de Rothschild and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild since 1998. This is a very old estate as it already existed in the 17th century, when it belonged to the Abbey de Saint-Polycarpe. The Domaine de Baronarques is today a famous winery of Languedoc. It is the result of the association between a very promising region and a famous Bordeaux family, which already owns several Grands Crus Classés such as the illustrious Château Mouton Rothschild. The winery has a 43 hectares vineyard and is located near Limoux, close to the Pyrénées and Carcassonne. The red wine vineyard is composed of 70 % of Bordeaux grape varieties (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc) and of 30% of Mediterranean grape varieties (Syrah, Malbec). The white wine vineyard is 100% composed of Chardonnay. This blend of numerous grape varieties is a key ingredient for the production of unique, intense and complex wines, still faithful to their origin terroir. “After Opus One and Almaviva, I am back to my native region, the Languedoc, with the same ambition : a promising terroir to make a great wine.” Baroness Philippine de Rothschild.
