The story of Domaine La Barroche revolves around people, terroir and passion. The passion is for the good things in life – the love of simple, honest pleasures.
Today, Domaine La Barroche is represented by a veritable patchwork of family members, in much that way that Châteauneuf-du-Pape's 13 grape varieties reflect the appellation's complexity.
Each person has their own individual character, but the same love of the terroir. Julien and Laetitia, brother and sister, are totally committed to their terroir, and exemplify the family values handed down to them. They arrived at the family estate in the early 2000s, and their future looks very bright.
The grapes for Liberty by La Barroche take their roots in the most southern 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.Vines : Average 65 years old
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

Tasted from multiple blends, the 2022 Vin De France Liberty has a medium to full-bodied, pure, incredibly polished style in its red, blue, and black fruits as well as peppery, violet, and tropical flower-like aromas and flavors. It's balanced, has a terrific sense of freshness, and a great finish
