Winemaker's notes:
Baron de Lestac rouge is aged in oak barrels for several months.
With each successive vintage it develops a delicacy, elegance and tannic structure
rarely encountered in this AOC.

>>COLOUR : A delicate yet deep garnet colour with hints of rich brick-red.

>>ON THE NOSE : A fine bouquet, balancing oak with red fruits.

>>ON THE PALATE : Good structure; silky, well-balanced tannins and oaky flavours combine to give a velvety smoothness.

Чист и средно интензивен рубинен цвят. Носът е умерен, с червени плодове, черни боровинки, касис и сливи. Ароматът е допълнен от стабилни тонове на дъб (виното е ферментирало и отлежавало в дъбови барици по класическата технология на бордо).
