More Information

“Based in Cravant-les-Coteaux in the heart of one of Chinon’s privileged viticultural hamlets, they are fortunate to have not only five excellent sites but also an incredible cellar chiselled out of the tuffeau behind the winery. While they are sometimes labelled traditionalists, I find them to be more naturalists. Everything here is organic, harvested by hand and bottled without fining or filtration. In any case, theirs is a style that I admire: they make cabernet franc taste as suave and succulent as pinot noir.” Joel B. Payne, Vinous 

100% Cabernet Franc. Le Domaine hails from Baudry's high-sited vines, which lie on a plateau above Chinon's première côte. The lion's share of the fruit comes from vines with an average age of around 35 years, planted on sandy, limestone-rich soils, while 20-30% is drawn from slightly younger vines on gravelly soils. 

"The nose has a darkness to it, a black cherry intensity dressed with an intense violet perfume. There is a delightful wealth of fruit on the palate though, pure and yet plump with scented cherry fruits. Harmonious and supple, there is nevertheless a dry and grained character to the middle and end of the palate. In the end, though, it is the fresh and perfumed fruits that dominate." 92-94 points, Chris Kissak, The Wine Doctor
