Liberty is a unique collaboration resulting from the experience of two winegrowing friends who have dared to go back to basics. In the vineyard, they freely explored their outstanding terroir off the beaten track, and transformed their emotions into a unique experience.
Liberty means not only the freedom to do as you wish, but also the freedom to reveal who you really are.
The grapes for Liberty by La Barroche takes their roots in the southernmost part of the Rhône valley, next to Châteauneuf de Gadagne and similar to the Crau plateau in Châteauneuf du Pape.
The 50-year-old vines grow on Plio-Quaternary terraces covered with river stones, at an altitude of 125 metres, on sun-drenched hillsides, watered by tributaries of the Rhone and windswept by the Mistral.
These old vines are warmed by the thick carpet of large river stones and draw all their nourishment from a mixture of sand and red and blue clay, which keeps them cool, even during the hottest seasons.
55% Grenache, 18% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre, 10% Cinsault, 5% Carignan
Rigorous bud pruning. The picking is entirely by hand, with sorting in the vineyard and again in the cellar.
The gravity-system cellar was built in 1930.
Wine-making in underground concrete vats. Destemming of underripe stalks. The wine stays on the skins for over 4 weeks.
Gentle extractions. Aging in old oak casks and 600-liter barrels for approximately 18 months.
The wine is not filtered before bottling.
“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. “
