Winemaker's Notes:

Extremely interesting and appealing white blend of Grenache Blanc and Vermentino with aromas of citrus and anise. No malolactic or wood aging, but an extremely round mouth-feel due to weekly "battonage" or lees stiring.
My Notes:

About Chateau La Baronne:

This vineyard of the Lignères family is very fortunate, it has a lot of doctors to take care of it! André and Suzette have pampered it for 50 years and now the younger generation continues to be challenged with the old vines. You'll surely share this passion when tasting their wines.

The medical family with wine in their veins. André (a general practitioner) and Suzette (a pharmacist), are now able to take a back seat as their sons Jean (Doctor of the village of Moux like his father before him) and his wife Anne, Paul (a dentist) and Geneviève (a biologist) look after the estate.

In 2002, Richard Marlowe, an incredible wine-specialist and our best and most faithful "fan", organized a meeting with the renowned Tuscan wine consultant Stefano Chioccioli. He knew Stefano could understand our "terroir" concept, i.e. trying to produce wines with more of everything – weight, aroma, dimension, focus, varietal definition, and most importantly, allowing the terroir to shine through in every cuvee.
