Tasting Notes

Warm climate and coastal breezes has created a fresh, modern Viognier with almond and honey perfumes and flavours of guava and apricot. It is balanced by a refreshing acidity on the finish.

Producer details

Baron de Badassière is from the Picpoul de Pinet region of the Languedoc, near the coast of the south of France. The name of the wine refers to the Badassière vineyard which lies near the small town of Pomérols. In the 18th century, the vineyard belonged to Baron Charles Emmanuel, a colourful character who was rumoured to be the illegitimate son of King Louis XV.

In the vineyard

The grapes for this wine come from selected vineyards around the Etang de Thau and Picpoul area. The vines are planted on sandy Pliocene soils. The grapes are both machine and hand-harvested.

In the winery

The grapes were macerated on their skins for several hours before pressing. The must was then fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 15°C. No malolactic fermentation took place and the wine was bottled early to retain freshness and delicate aromatics.

Food Recommendations

Try with a creamy mild-ish curry.
