2016 Domaine Bernard Baudry
2016 was a great year here in terms of quality - but sadly early season frosts mean the Baudry's lost about half their grapes - so volumes are dramatically down. The fruit for this 'Domaine' wine comes mainly from sand and limestone soils on the plateau. After fermentation Matthieu ages it for 15 months in cement tanks. This Cabernet Franc is peppy and bright with glorious lines, a delicate framework of gentle tannin and acidity that deliver the fruit in a soft and juicy way. Raspberry, firm strawberry and then some richer cherry juice works gorgeously. Try this after half an hour in the fridge - spellbinding summer wine. L&S (Aug 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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.
