Château La Baronne

Château La Baronne

Le Château La Baronne, located in the unspoilt region of Corbières, in Occitanie, is a family estate nestled in the foothills of the Montagne d'Alaric. Its exceptional terroir is marked by the four great geological eras and offers a unique diversity. The clay-limestone mass of the Alaric Mountain is home to groundwater reserves that play a vital role in the dry and windy Mediterranean climate of the region.

The estate's vines, planted between 100 and 200 meters above sea level, flourish on a wide variety of terraces, valleys and gravel hillsides. The soils, mainly calcareous, clayey and sandstone, come from tertiary and quaternary formations. The grape varieties grown in Château La Baronne, such as Carignan, Grenache noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Grenache blanc, Grenache gris, Roussanne and Vermentino, reflect the identity of the Corbières.

The history of La Baronne goes back five generations of the Lignères family, passionate doctors-winemakers. Founded in 1890 by Louis Lignères, Lignères has enjoyed national success. André and Suzette Lignères, after studying medicine, were attracted to the Domaine de La Baronne in the 1950s because of its unique location and exceptional terroirs. They began bottling La Baronne wines in the 1970s, with the support of their children Paul, Jean and Geneviève.

Today, Jean and Anne represent the passion and commitment of the Lignères family, while the Château La Baronne team contributes to the creation of wines of excellence. The manual harvest, with a loyal international team, is a highlight of each vintage.
