Mr Roche planted this plot of Carignan in 1892. The vines have bravely survived the years sheltered between two cypress hedges and offer one of the most beautiful expressions of this emblematic grape variety of the Corbières. The nose and palate are full of elegance, with ripe fruit and sweet spices. Its complex palate combines depth, finesse, silky tannins, and magnificent persistence. Ageing occurs for 12 months in barrels (with lees stirring) and horizontal terracotta eggs. Try pairing with duck, veal, or Saint Nectaire.

Jean and Ann Ligneres

When you visit Chateau la Baronne, you begin to understand precisely what goes into producing the Lignères family’s exceptional wines. We journeyed through the vineyards to experience the look, feel and smell of the terroir of the AlaricMountain. 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.
