Description

Sourced from a single block on the valley floor, where the vines have their feet in free-draining sandy/gravel soils, Bernard Baudry Les Granges Chinon is made a lighter, fruit-driven style with a fine-grained tannic profile. This flows easily with no sense of anything being forced. It’s full of bright raspberry, violets and a hint of blackberries and cream; there’s a mere whiff of reduction on opening, so give it a little bit of air. Easy to like, bright and fresh and can be enjoyed in youth.

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.
