Badet Clement reveals two newcomers for UK market
Badet Clement is bringing two new products over to the UK market.
The company, which specialises in creating premium branded southern French wines, is launching the Domaine due Trésor range and Clair de Gris, described as a “Provencal-eque rosé”, which will sit under the Les Jamelles brand umbrella.
Domaine du Tresor, which was purchased by Badet Clement in 2015, comprises 60ha of IGP Pays d’Oc vines near Narbonne. The acquisition was initially designed to ensure the consistency of supply for Badet’s varietal IGP ranges, such as Les Jamelles.
The new Domaine du Tresor range consists of three Pays d’Oc wines: a Chardonnay, a Cabernet-Syrah and a Gris de Gris, a rosé made from 100% Grenache Gris.
Les Jamelles Clair de Gris is a Pays d’Oc wine and it is a new addition to the Les Jamelles range. The wine is made from 100% Grenache Gris, rare in the Languedoc and unique as it produces pale pink grapes and wines, the latter with grey highlights hence the wine’s name, which translates as ‘light grey’.
Laurent Delaunay, winemaker and president at Badet Clement, said: “I am really pleased with the first estate wines from our Domaine du Tresor which reflect the potential of the terroir. We always aim to make wines that correspond to current consumer trends and our new Les Jamelles Clair de Gris is unusual and perfect for UK wine drinkers who love the pale and elegant style of roses that are made in Provence.”
