La Baronne Alaric (750ml)
The Lignères family cultivates organic and biodynamic wines around the Alaric Mountain, in a privileged corner of Languedoc-Roussillon. La Baronne grows a selection of typical grapes from this region, but the family has a special affection for Carignan. They are constantly striving to heighten the expression, finesse and elegance of this signature regional variety. The domaine is proud to cultivate one of the oldest Carignan vines of the Languedoc, dating back to 1892.
This is the emblematic cuvée of the winery. A blend of Carignan, Grenache and Syrah, from parcels planted respectively in 1955, 1985 and 1990 to the foot of the Montagne d’Alaric. Four weeks maceration then wild yeast fermentation and elevage in barrels for 12 months.
This is an attractive, fresh Corbières, full of fruit and charm. Rich and appealing. Aromas of plum, pepper, toast and spicy oak on the nose. The palate is smooth, complex, and long on the finish. Enjoy with roast meats, lamb, stews.
A blend of biodynamic grapes; 55% 25 year old Syrah, 30% 60 year old Carignan and 15% 30 year old Grenache from the blue marls and clay limestone soils of the northern Corbières. The vines grow on the hillside. The grapes are hand harvested, sorted and destemmed. The wine ferments in stainless steel and cement tanks via indigenous yeasts for 28-30 days with gentle maceration. Aged for 12 months in older barrels with stirring of the fine lees. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
