2015 was the hottest vintage recorded in 50 years so the grapes had a wonderful ripeness to them. Rain in September helped to maintain acidity levels leading a wonderfully balanced wine. Damson, violets and black fruits in abundance that continue on the palate. This is a very juicy and approachable wine with soft tannins and a fresh finish that should be enjoyed in its youth.

This classic Chinon falls into the glass with a dark purple hue. The nose reminds me of Christmas spices and warm cooked red fruit. The palate has an attractive bright acidity, and energy and vitality.Will Lyons, The Sunday Times (Aug 2017)

Domaine Bernard Baudry
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.
