Domaine de Baron'Arques
In 2003 Domaine de Baron'Arques presented its first vintage and one of the first wines to benefit from the AOC Limoux rouge appellation.
The venerable estate, which goes back at least as far as the 17th century, was bought by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and her two sons in December 1998 under the name Domaine de Lambert. The vineyard and winemaking facilities have since been extensively renovated.
Located in the commune of Saint-Polycarpe, near Limoux in the Aude département, Domaine de Baron'Arques has 48 hectares (118 acres) of vines and a diversity of soils, micro-climates, and varietals that give its wine richness and complexity.
Produced and vinified in the hallowed tradition of Bordeaux winemaking, Domaine de Baron'Arques is now a reference against which other Languedoc wines will be measured.
