Bernard Baudry is one of the newer stars of the Chinon scene. A graduate of the Lycée 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 assisted by his son Matthieu. We work with four estates that produce Chinon (not to mention the numerous other of our estates that produce different appellations for Loire Valley Cabernet Franc). Each of these Chinon has a separate identity defined by the winemaker’s style. Baudry’s style exemplifies rich, precise fruit picked at perfect ripeness levels and vinified cleanly using state-of-the-art equipment.
