Domaine Bernard Baudry
Bernard Baudry, son of a winemakers’ family, started his professional life as a vine-tending consultant at the Tours laboratory, where he worked with Jacques Puisais. In 1975 he decided to start his own estate with 2 hectares of vines. His son Matthieu studied in the Mâcon area, then in Bordeaux, and, after a year working in Tasmania and California, joined his father in 2000.
The domain has 32 hectares of vineyards spread across the AOC Chinon, in Cravant les Coteaux and Chinon. The vineyards are located on very varied terroirs of gravel in the plain, limestone clay on coteau and sandy limestones plateaus.
The entire vineyard is now conducted in organic farming since 2006. In each bottle, they seek to express Cabernet Franc in its elegance, balance and aromatic freshness, in harmony with each of the terroirs and the year’s climate.
