2016 Bernard Baudry "Les Granges" Chinon, 750ml

Availability: In stock (3)

From an exceptional producer of Cabernet Franc in Loire Valley this is a fantastic gateway into the charming world of cool climate red wines. All of Baudry's red of completely monovarietal and vinified separately by plot. Les Granges is his most youthful wine, with the vines only dating back 25-30 years, on a plot so hear the river that it sometimes floods and is tended to from a boat. Organic farming, manual picked grapes, native yeasts, and fermented and aged in concrete.

From the mouth of the importer (Louis/Dressner):

"Along with the wines of Domaine Joguet, Baudry is at the vanguard of a new approach to traditional Chinon: purity and extract. In A Wine & Food Guide to the Loire Valley (the most comprehensive guide to Loire Valley wines yet written), Jacqueline Friedrich writes, “My interest in Loire wines hadn’t gone much further than the tasty “petits Chinons” I habitually drank in the wine bistros of Paris. In four days I changed my mind completely. Not only did my thirst grow for the mouth watering little Chinons, but I found the “serious’ versions made by vignerons like Charles Joguet and Bernard Baudry exhilarating.”
