Bernard Baudry les Grezeaux Chinon 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Starting with only two hectares in 1982, Bernard Baudry, now working side-by-side with his dynamic son Matthieu, has grown the domaine to its present area of 30 hectares. This size allows him to vinify each parcel separately and show the distinct terroirs in the area. The Les Granges, from sandy, gravelly soil is an excellent expression of Cabernet Franc, with great fruit and balance. The Grezeaux, from 50 year old vines planted in gravel and clay shows a distinct smoky, bacon-y and blueberry component. Clos Guillot is from clay over yellow limestone and is perhaps the finest and most elegant of Baudry’s wines. Finally the Croix Boisee, from 35-40 year old vines planted in chalky, white limestone soil, spends up to two years in barrel and always shows as the most structured cuvee.

I started drinking this way too early. Lovely. Tart cherries and leather, maybe a hint of red bell pepper, with a floral, fruity aroma. It feels like the wildness of a cab franc, all dressed up for a fancy dinner.

Leathery and spicy to the nose. Strong fruit and the lather in mouth. Was good with chicken mustard and aspargus.

Fresh and focused with a vibrant chalky frame supporting the black cherry red currant singed juniper and tobacco notes. Features a juicy olive-tinged finish. Drink now through 2016. JM Wine Spectator.

WS 92pts. - Winemaker Notes - One should expect perfect ripeness and concentration in the wines of Bernard Baudry. Similar to the pioneering work of neighboring Domaine Charles Joguet, optimal extraction is created by Baudry while maintaining balance. Many parcels of old vines contribute low yielding fruit to Baudry's wine.
