2015 Bernard Baudry Chinon "Le Clos Guillot," Loire Valley, France

$41.00

100% cabernet franc from a southwest-exposed limestone and clay vineyard, planted in 1993. Fermented in cement and neutral oak vats, aged an additional 21 months in 2-5yr old barrels and unlined cement. This is elegant Chinon, rather than powerful, with freshness and length. It's delicious now, but will cellar well over the next decade.

 

From the cellar at Gwen.
