This was awesome. No formal notes but juicy and melting tannins but still firm structure with outrageous fruit. No rush. But awesome. So awesome.

Bold and super extracted. Bretty too, but in a good way if you believe in such thing. I do :)

On a table with great wine, all showing as well as could be hoped, this was the best red. Awe inspiring. Limestone minerality and integrating fruit. Many years left, but if you can, try a bottle now.

Choice stuff - starting open up & blossom! Could own 4or5 of these or one bottle of Rougeard, I'll take the Baudry and enjoy now and down the line!

Capa y densidad media color violeta, en nariz fruta roja madura, muy buena potencia , mineral, notas florales. En boca goloso , elegante y fino... Buen final largo y agradable.

2014 - closed aromas but with sneaky floral and bees wax scents.. Tight flavor and a little unruly right now. Possibly the most massive Chinon Blanc I've ever had - going to try to lose a couple bottle in the cellar.
