ANJOU, LOIRE VALLEY, FRANCE
France’s Loire Valley is where the Malbec grape achieves its greatest complexities. Often malbec is obstructed by and jamminess or oak. Domaine Baron’s old-vine bottling is a pure example of the grape in all of its glory. Tart red berries explode in the nose and attack. Purple fruit lies in the lush mid-palate alongside savory notes of freshly ground tellicherry peppercorns and spicy red peppers. Partner this old-vine Malbec with all manner of fowl, mushroom, and hearty soups and stews. The classical sheep’s milk cheeses of the Loire Valley will also accompany this wine seamlessly. Enjoy now through 2022.
