Crushed & Cured

Baron de Badassière, Syrah IGP Côtes de Thau, 2023


Deep dark red in colour, this wine reveals aromas of black pepper and liquorice, alongside flavours of red fruits and a hint of cocoa. The palate is rich and juicy with supple tannins and a fresh, lifted finish.

The Baron de Badassière wines come from Picpoul de Pinet, near the coast in the Languedoc. The name derives from the Badassière vineyard, situated near the small town of Pomérols. In the 18th century, the vineyard belonged to Baron Charles Emmanuel, a colourful character rumoured to be the illegitimate son of King Louis XV. 

The grapes are destemmed and macerated on their skins for 20 days, then pressed in the pneumatic press. The must was cold settled and then fermented at a controlled temperature of 20°C - 23°C with regular racking off and pumping over.
