Bernard Baudry Les Granges Chinon 2020 Wine Review

This wine review is of Bernard Baudry’s “Les Granges” cabernet franc from Chinon in the Loire Valley and the 2020 vintage. The wine has a purity of red fruits that I have not previously tasted in Baudry’s Les Granges Chinon. It opens to aromas of raspberries and red plums, spice and, consistent with cabernet franc, a subtle twig character. The palate is dry, red fruited, medium bodied and has medium tannins that are ripe with a fleshy texture. The acidity is mid range. Aged in concrete, there is no oak influence and the wine finishes on pure red fruits and has good length (10 seconds). This Chinon is ready to drink now but will reward a couple of years of cellaring. Rating: Good. Website: Producer. Reviewed: September 2021.
