    Cuvée presentation

    The Cabernet Franc grapes constituting this cuvée are obtained from a limestone-clay soil with good south-south-easterly exposure. To produce this cuvée, the domain's favoured approach is harvesting by hand and a two-week fermentation in wooden or cement vats. In order to preserve the purity of the fruity, floral varietal aromas, élevage is conducted for one year in barrels that are several years old, then for nine months in cement vats. Tasting reveals notes of red and black berries and a great freshness. Despite its vivacity, it will still be able to age well... very well! It will keep for 10-15 years in your cellar.

    Information about domain Bernard Baudry

    After studying oenology in Beaune, Bernard Baudry started his career as a winemaking consultant in a laboratory, before setting up on his own in 1975 on a small two hectare domaine. In 2000, his son Matthieu came to work with him. Together, they strive to give expression to the richness of the Cabernet Franc grape, while at the same time preserving the typical characteristics of each terroir. Today they have a 32 hectare vineyard in the Chinon appellation, in the communes of Cravant les Coteaux and Chinon. In the vineyard, Cabernet Franc is complemented by 10% of Chenin. The terroirs are varied and the soil contains gravel on the plain, clay limestone on the hillside slopes and sandy limestone on the plateau - all this diversity results in parcel-based winemaking. Since the outset, there has been an environmentally friendly approach at the vineyard, and since 2006 it has been run organically; the soil is rebalanced using compost based on cow manure and straw. Characterised by their elegance, purity and freshness, the wines from this domaine are among the most sought-after for the appellation.
