ADD

This single-vineyard Chinon comes from a producer whose Cabernet Franc bottlings capture the spirit of the Loire Valley like few others in the region. Bernard Baudry has always taken a traditionalist stance to winemaking, with each of his wines bringing out the best of the myriad different soil types and climats Chinon has to offer. For Le Clos Guillot, a vineyard of limestone, clay, and silica, the grapes are hand-harvested and the wine is aged for a year in old barrels to give a focused Chinon with plenty of crunchy forest fruit. While approachable young, it also boasts the ideal balance of fresh acidity and grippy tannins to evolve for several years in your cellar. In the meantime, you can appreciate the leafy, herbal tones that characterize this classic rendition of Loire Cabernet. –Anthony Lynch
