    The wine

    Chinon Les Grézeaux comes from the oldest plot of the estate with about fifty year old vines. It has been aged for twelve months in 3 to 5-year-old barriques. This wine has substance, it is concentrated and silky because of a gravelly soil. It is characterised by an excellent ageing potential, at least ten years.

    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.
