Baudry

100% Cabernet Franc. Grézeaux is Baudry's oldest vines, at 60-70 years, on sandy, gravelly clay soils at the bottom of the hill of Sonnay in the village of Cravant. Fermented in concrete with 20-25- day maceration; aged in three- to five-year-old casks for 12 months. Per Mathieu Baudry, Grézeaux is smokier and more structured compared to younger-vine, clay-limestone-soil Clos Guillot.
