Bernard Baudry Chinon Rose - Terroir of Grezeaux, Loire Valley

Vintage: 2014 Region: France
Type: Rose
Winery: Bernard Baudry
Tasting Notes:

100% Cabernet Franc.
The wine's colour is close to what the French call oeil de perdrix ('eye of the partridge); a kind of pale, copper-tinted pink. It's fragrant, subtle and bone dry, with a backbone of vibrant yet fine acidity. Decent texture too, but this is more about finesse and freshness - a striking example of how rosé can in fact be a wine of terroir and also an alternative to some of the more fuller-bodied rosé wines.

It compliments anything that you would normally eat with a crisp white wine, and also typical rosé summer BBQ and picnic foods.

Bernard Baudry is unquestionably one of Chinon’s most outstanding producers. Not only does he have the talent to make delicious and consistent wines, vintage to vintage, but he is also fortunate enough to have vineyard land that showcases many of the varied soil types of the appellation. After completing his studies at the viticultural school in Beaune, Bernard returned to the Loire Valley to consult in Tours. By 1975, he had purchased his first two hectares of land in Cravant-les-Coteaux, a village from which almost half of the production of A.O.C. Chinon is sourced. Over the years, the domaine has grown to twenty-five hectares. Bernard’s son, Matthieu, joined the family domaine in 2000 after studying winemaking in the Mâconnais and Bordeaux, with internships both in Tasmania and California!

The Baudrys work vineyards composed of gravel, sand, limestone, silica, and clay. The variations of terroir and vinification methods make each of their cuvées unique and distinct. Bernard and Matthieu focus the lion’s share of their production on Chinon Rouge, five fine cuvées of Cabernet Franc, all aged in old and new barrels in their incredible cellars chiseled out of tuffeau behind the winery. They make a surprising Chinon Blanc, a rarity to find let alone to import, as well as a stunning Chinon Rosé. The Baudrys are staunch traditionalists, and you would have a hard time finding a Chinon more classic than theirs.
