Bernard Baudry has rightfully gained an enormous reputation for fascinating and delicious iterations of the local Cabernet Franc grape, most famously with his reds. Here the rosé is also 100% Cabernet Franc – but with just a short burst on the skins adding just a chink of pink colour - and then fermented and aged in unlined cement tanks – he retains freshness and bright-lines. A delicious, joyous alternative to something from the almost ubiquitous south-eastern corner of France. L&S (Sep 2021)

The 2020 Chinon Rosé is a very pure, dry, mid-weight that offers delicate raspberry notes, but this is as much about structure as it is about fruit. The flint soils contribute a slight phenolic texture and length to the finish. A serious food rosé, made with a blend of 50% flint and 50% alluvial soils, and hand-harvested and gently pressed.

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.
