Tasting Notes

Jean, the talented winemaker, had a stroke of genius when he decided to subject the ancient Grenache gris to an extended maceration process, resulting in this remarkable white wine with its splendid salmon hue, captivating richness, and authentic minerality. Much like the winemaker himself, it possesses a robust personality. The nose reveals enchanting notes of candied orange, dried fruit, and saffron. On the palate, it bursts forth with vibrancy and richness, culminating in a refreshing finish that leaves a lasting impression."

Château La Baronne

In the heart of Occitania, in the untamed, pristine massif known for safeguarding its most exquisite secrets—the Corbières—lies a gem. The Montagne d’Alaric, one of the Corbières' cherished treasures, graces the landscape with its lofty presence. Nestled at its foothills, within an extraordinary natural haven, resides Château La Baronne. This is the saga of a family of doctor-winemakers—the Lignères family—deep-rooted in the Languedoc, where their hearts have pulsed between in these vineyards for five generations. In the 1970s, the first bottlings bearing the name Château La Baronne began to grace the world. Their children—Paul, Jean, and Geneviève—joined hands in nurturing the estate's growth. And today, it is Jean and Anne who ardently champion the colors of La Baronne, forging ahead with unwavering passion and dedication. Château La Baronne, a testament to a legacy, a love for the land, and a vision of the future.
