Baron de Badassiere
Baron de Badassière Picpoul de Pinet 2019
Andy's Tasting Notes
Delicate, aromatic and crisp with ripe melon and lime fruit. Grown in a maritime climate, which gives a subtle saline hint on the finish.
The grapes for this wine come from selected vineyards around the Étang de Thau, planted on clay and limestone soils.
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.
