    (Bernard Baudry Chinon Clos Guillot) From a clay-limestone terroir, the vines aged approximately 20 to 30 years says Mathieu. This will be bottled in March 2011. A big, rich colour in the glass here, still glossy and fresh but with a dark hue. It has seen twelve months in three-year old oak. A lovely style on the nose, there is a richness to it, warmth with a honeyed suggestion perhaps reflecting the time in wood. And there is a lovely freshness and perfume coming from it too. Elegant and seductive rather than bright and lifted. Fresh, stylish, balanced with a very fine polish and detachment on the start. Then in the midpalate it reveals more structure and substance, revealing a layer of ripe and velvety tannins balanced with supple texture and good fresh acidity. A lovely weight to it, textured but not heavy or creamy. And it has lots of grip in the finish. Super wine.

    (Bernard Baudry Chinon Clos Guillot) A clay and limestone terroir again. A beautifully glossy hue here, notes of minerals and stone, over a layer of dark and creamy fruit. Very restrained in style, although very textured and fruit-rich through the middle it is well-framed from the beginning with acid and tannin. A ripe flourish of tannin in the finish shows this is one for the cellar. Excellent potential.
