    (Bernard Baudry Chinon Les Grézeaux) From a gravel terroir. This has now seen twelve months in barrel, the oak being 4- and 5-years old. There is a warmer feel to this wine on the nose than the preceding cuvées. It has a more polished style of fruit, with softer edges, and this carries through on the palate as well. It shows here a rich style of fruit, a more textured palate and overall a more convincing presence in the mouth. There is good tannic structure behind it, and more supple but correct, balanced acidity. More tannic structure in the finish. Great potential here.

    (Bernard Baudry Chinon Les Grézeaux) The terroir here is more gravelly-pebbly, although the vines (60-years old) are quite close to those for Les Granges. Has been in oak for the past two months. A darker colour here, still with a bluish rim, a little gloss as well. Clean and fresh, with a little more concentration. A lovely and flattering texture on the palate, nicely balanced and fresh, with a good acid backbone. Vibrant, with a tannic finish. Ripe fruit character. Good potential here.
