Starting with only two hectares in 1982, Bernard Baudry, now working side-by-side with his dynamic son Matthieu, has grown the domaine to its present area of 30 hectares. This size allows him to vinify each parcel separately and show the distinct terroirs in the area. The Les Granges, from sandy, gravelly soil is an excellent expression of Cabernet Franc, with great fruit and balance. The Grezeaux, from 50 year old vines planted in gravel and clay shows a distinct smoky, bacon-y and blueberry component. Clos Guillot is from clay over yellow limestone and is perhaps the finest and most elegant of Baudry’s wines. Finally the Croix BoiseÅLe, from 35-40 year old vines planted in chalky, white limestone soil, spends up to two years in barrel and always shows as the most structured cuveÅLe.
The Croix Boisée, from 35-40 year old vines planted in chalky, white limestone soil, spends up to two years in barrel and always shows as the most structured cuvée. Fermented in oak and aged in barrels for two years, this cuvee is always the last to be released.
