2023 VIOGNIER, Baron Badassière. Côtes de Thau, Languedoc

Bin:  120

Alcohol percentage:  12.5%

Grape variety:

100% Viognier given a few hours cold skin maceration before cool fermentation and early bottling – to retain maximum freshness.

Producer:

From the website of the UK agent:
“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. The wines are made exclusively for Liberty Wines by New Zealand winemaker Graeme Paul, with consultant Matt Thomson, at the Cave de Pomérols cooperative”.

Old Bridge rating:

Rare to find an affordable Viognier with genuine Viognier aromatic characteristics (peach, apricot) but also combining freshness and delicacy with the soft, gentle texture that really defines the grape.
