Winemaking friends, searching for the intrinsic qualities of the terroir, have produced a wine that is as bohemian as it is earthy, with unexpected virtues. Liberty by La Barroche is a full-bodied wine with good structure, character and tight tannins. Its aromas are reminiscent of juicy, black raspberries, violets, and peppery herbs. It is mellow, yet has good acidity and elegant minerality. Liberty by La Barroche is a gastronomic wine with an ageing potential of several decades.

Wine AdvocateA new wine from Julien, his 2015 Vin de France comes mostly from a parcel of 65-year-old vines planted in a cooler, higher elevation parcel. In addition, it includes some of his declassified Châteauneuf du Pape grapes, hence the Vin de France label and not Côtes du Rhône (Châteauneuf du Pape is one of the few appellations that cannot be declassified to Côtes du Rhône). Made from 55% Grenache, 18% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre and the rest Cinsault and Carignan, 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.

Wine SpectatorBroad and fleshy in feel, with light charcoal and alder notes underscoring the broad swath of warm plum and raspberry paste flavors. Smoldering tobacco accents run through the finish. A bit rustic along the edges, but shows plenty of guts and depth. Best from 2019 through 2022. 130 cases imported.
