Château La Baronne - Le Grenache
Vin de France, Languedoc, France
Typical of the Lignéres quest for authenticity, they wanted to make a wine with just Grenache, to showcase each grape and piece of the estate doing its own thing. The beautiful, perfumed nose is enough to tell us they have succeeded. This wine instantly transports you to the white clay of the Alairac Mountains. Warm with intense red fruit, balanced by freshness.
No added sulphites, no oak, natural yeast—nothing but sweet, ripe Grenache fruit.

precisely what goes into producing the Lignères family’s
On arrival in our recent (pre-Covid) visit, we were greeted by
the family and a small army of adorable puppies. If juggling
medical practices and a vineyard isn’t enough; they were
treating and rehoming some abandoned puppies (in between
tastings). We continued our journey through the vineyards to
experience the look, feel and smell of the terroir of the Alaric
Mountain. The vines are well-tended, happy, healthy, and full
of beautiful biodiversity. The winery — a fantastic place of
experimentation, including Jean’s custom-designed
egg-shaped clay vessels for vinification and storage. The last
stop on the tour is the tasting room where it all starts to make
sense. One can taste the respect of land and all living things,
meticulous attention to detail, and the loving care in each
wine produced by the Lignères family.
Another trip to the Languedoc proves yet again that
wonderful people make wonderful wine.
