Wine of the week #5 2016
Domain Bernard Baudry, "Les Granges", Chinon, 2014
Everything I have read about the 2014 Loire vintage and all of the wines I have tasted so far suggest it is going to be a top vintage. The reds available to date are limited to the lighter, early drinking, "entry level" styles, like this Chinon. However it is still brilliant.
An enticing aroma of dark fruits leads to really refreshing, crunchy cranberry and bramble fruit flavours. Nice tartness on the long finish leaves you wanting to return for more. Lip smackingly good stuff.
£12.95, Lea & Sandeman
