This is the Baudry family's 'opening' Chinon and remains a true bargain. They work organically here and this is a no nonsense bottle of pleasure. Beautifully made, with the idea to deliver pert, crisp Cabernet Franc fruit to the glass with just the minimal intervention, as such this is aged in cement tanks and sees no wood. The results are super. There is a good crunch to the black-currant and cherry nuanced fruit and a lovely leafy freshness too. Easy, joyful and yet with a fascinating wild side that casts a tantalising, spicy shadow over this sparkling beauty. L&S (Oct 2018)

This is fine wine that, fortunately for us, hasn’t yet acquired global appeal. It’s packed full of floral and purple and fruit, with a wild, almost French bistrot-like smell. A top choice.Will Lyons, The Sunday Times(Dec 2018)
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.
