The Case for Wine offers the renown Loire wines of the Baudry family.
CHINON – RED WHITE AND ROSE
Bernard Baudry is unquestionably one of Chinon’s most outstanding producers.
Bernard Baudry, now joined by his son Matthieu, is a master of terroir-driven winemaking in the Loire Valley. Cabernet Franc is the common denominator here, but the Baudry vineyards span a range of soil types—sand, gravel, clay, limestone, chalk—yielding fascinatingly diverse expressions of the same grape.
The Baudrys farm their vineyards organically and ferment this wine in cement and wood tanks, then age it for one year in used oak barrels. The wine is then racked back into cement tanks, where it rests an additional nine months before an unfiltered bottling. It is a powerful expression of Chinon, with beautifully refined aromas of forest fruit and spice. While its elegance makes it approachable today, it will easily age and improve for ten or fifteen years in a good cellar.
