Winemaker’s Notes

Liberty by La Barroche, a “do it yourself” wine par excellence, is the joint expression of their desire for freedom. This slightly rebellious choice, guided by wisdom and experience, has led them to experiment with grape variety/soil pairings, rising above codes and standards to produce an excellent, characterful, sincere wine, which expresses their desires, ideals, temperament, creativity, and originality.

A new wine from Julien, his Vin de France comes mostly from a parcel of 65-year-old-vines planted in a cooler, higher elevation parcel. In addition, it includes some of his declassified Châteauneuf-du-Pape grapes, hence the Vin de France label and not Côtes du Rhône (Châteauneuf-du-Pape is one of the few appellations that cannot be declassified to Côtes du Rhône.) Made from 55% Grenache, 18% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre and the rest Cinsault and Carignan, it tastes like a Châteauneuf-du-Pape with its juicy black raspberry, violets, peppery herbs and distinct minerality. This comparison is certainly still valid on the palate, as well and its medium to full-bodied, concentrated and structured, with a sappy, grippy style that will evolve nicely for 7-8 years or more. Don’t let the Vin de France label sway you, this is the real deal.
