The name of the wine refers to the Badassière vineyard, located next to the Étang de Thau, in and around which the Picpoul grapes are grown. Found on France’s Mediterranean coastline, the sunny warm climate aids ripening in the grapes thus producing the wine’s fruity flavours, while the cool sea breezes bring freshness, acidity and crisp aromatics.
The name of this wine is in reference to the Badassière vineyard’s colourful history, belonging to Baron Charles Emmanuel in the 18th century, the alleged illegitimate child of King Louis XV.
Harvested grapes arrive early in the morning whilst cool, before maceration on the skins and pneumatic pressing occurs. Fermentation at controlled temperatures takes place in stainless steel. Unoaked.
A classic partner to all straightforward shellfish and light white fish dishes – classically dressed crab, or a crevette salad.
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
