This feels fresh and lively, its ripe flavors of cherry and red currant contrasted by stony, gravelly minerality. Itandrsquo;s deliciously approachable now, demonstrating impeccable harmony and poise.

From sand and gravel riverside sites with a slight rise that encourages drainage, the Baudry 2009 Chinon Les Granges andmdash; their largest cuvandeacute;e, and bottled partly in May and the rest in September andmdash; smells of fresh blackberry, chard, and artichoke. Firm and well-concentrated yet bright and buoyant on the palate, its sense of salinity, tart berry skin, and bitter-edged leafy greens makes for quite invigorating palate stain. At 12.5% alcohol, the 2009 isnandrsquo;t far off in weight or style from the ideal that the domaine seeks to achieve with this cuvee and should remain delightful for 12andndash;18 months, though those looking for genuinely sweet fruit will, itandrsquo;s true, come away with their berry basket empty.

This dense red delivers succulent plum and cherry flesh joined by taut plum skin and briar flavors. This shows plenty of stuffing through the finish with dark tobacco and tapenade notes all offset by a brisk chalk edge. One for the cellar. Drink now through 2016.

Refined wine with aromas of cherries and berry fruit reminding us of Pinot Noir in certain years. The fresh, clean aromas of this wine linger on the palate. 2000 was the first vintage produced.

From sand and gravel riverside sites with a slight rise that encourages drainage, the Baudry 2009 Chinon Les Granges - their largest cuvée, and bottled partly in May and the rest in September - smells of fresh blackberry, chard, and artichoke. Firm and well-concentrated yet bright and buoyant on the palate, its sense of salinity, tart berry skin, and bitter-edged leafy greens makes for quite invigorating palate stain. At 12.5% alcohol, the 2009 isn't far off in weight or style from the ideal that the domaine seeks to achieve with this cuvee and should remain delightful for 12-18 months, though those looking for genuinely sweet fruit will, it's true, come away with their berry basket empty.

Fabulous velvety berry ripeness with none of the greener characteristics of Cab Franc. Balanced, elegant and smooth, with nuances of violets, black pepper and, similar to a Rhone red, garrigue herbs. A beautifully crafted expression of this often ornery grape.

Winemaker's Notes:

Les Granges is a fruity wine ready for drinking in its youth. A smooth and lively Chinon characteristic of a sandy and gravely terroir.
