"ORGANIC, THIS IS A STYLE I ADMIRE. THEY MAKE CABERNET FRANC AS SUAVE AND SUCCULENT AS PINOT NOIR." - VINOUS
"100% Cabernet Franc. Les Granges is the Baudry family's vin de bistro--a delicious, entry level Cabernet Franc designed for early drinking. It comes mostly from the Estate's younger vines (planted between 1985 and 1988) grown on the alluvial gravel soils of the terraces by the river Vienne. This is a terroir that loves long periods of dry and warm weather, which is exactly what it received in 2019.
The fruit was picked by hand, fermented cool, and then raised in a mix of concrete and large wooden vats. It's another glorious release for this juicy, dark cherry, meat and ink-noted wine, with a little more energy and powdery grip than the mouth-filling 2018. Just delicious. Don't hesitate!" - Bibendum
"Based in Cravant-les-Coteaux in the heart of one of Chinon’s privileged viticultural hamlets, they are fortunate to have not only five excellent sites but also an incredible cellar chiselled out of the tuffeau behind the winery. While they are sometimes labelled traditionalists, I find them to be more naturalists. Everything here is organic, harvested by hand and bottled without fining or filtration. In any case, theirs is a style that I admire: they make cabernet franc taste as suave and succulent as pinot noir.” - Vinous
