Baudry Chinon les Granges 2011
"Les Granges is a 6 hectare vineyard, located on the banks of the Vienne, consisting of alluvial sand and gravel soils. The vines were planted between 1985 and 1988. This is Baudry's entry level Chinon. These are some of Baudry's youngest vines yet they offer remarkable character. Yields are 40-50 hl/ha, and fermentation is temperature-controlled in stainless steel. The final assemblage is in concrete." -Importer
