Domaine Bernard Baudry

100% Cabernet Franc. From the youngest vines of the estate, a 4-hectare plot planted between 1993 and 2000 on a SE-facing slope near town of Chinon. Clay over limestone bedrock in the upper parcel, with more sand and gravel in the lower part. Fermented in wood vats and aged in used barriques for 1 year. Per Mathieu Baudry: more fruit-forward and less smoky compared to older-vine, gravelly-soil Grézeaux.
