Described by Eric Asimov in his November 14th 2013 column as "juicy, with pretty aromas and flavors of smoky, spicy red fruit." Bernard Baudry is one of the newer stars of the Chinon scene. A graduate of the Lycee de Beaune, Baudry created his 25-hectare estate out of family parcels and purchased land. He quickly rose to prominence in the appellation for precise, textured Chinon. Baudry is now retired and his son Matthieu, who has been making wine with his father since 2000 (not to mention working in New Zealand and California before making his way back home) has taken over as head vigneron.
