We welcome back the Bernard Baudry wines to the list – in the guise of Le Clos Guillot Chinon 2018.
From the Loire Valley in France, this is a beautiful dry red wine made from 100% Cabernet Franc that has a gorgeous minerality to it. Enjoy the fresh summer fruit flavours, that are incredibly pure indeed. It a wine that is in the classic Loire red wines style.
Bernard Baudry was born into a Chinon winemaking family in Cravant-les-Côteaux, Loire. Having studied oenology in Beaune, he started making his own wines in 1982, with only two hectares of vines. Today the estate is made up of 30 hectares, from six different sites, all of which are worked without the use of artificial herbicides or pesticides. His wines reflect the great versatility of Cabernet Franc when grown on different sites and are very much ‘terroir’ driven. Matthieu, his son has been working with Bernard since 2000 and now does most of the wine-making – the tradition continues. Beautiful wines, purely made, crisp and juicy Cabernet Franc.
