    CENTRAL REGION      
    DOMAINE
BERNARD BAUDRY
A Top domaine for Chinon wines.
The he estate is made up of 30 hectares, from six different sites, all of which are worked without the use of artificial herbicides or pesticides. His wines reflect the great versatility of Cabernet Franc when grown on different sites and are very much 'terroir' driven. Beautiful wines, purely made, crisp and juicy Cabernet Franc.

Recommended!

CHINON
Bernard Baudry

Wine Spectator This has a good juicy edge to the mix of plum and black cherry fruit, with bay leaf, green olive and savoury notes running underneath. Might be a bit too herbaceous and tangy through the finish for some, but the fruit keeps up overall. For fans of Loire reds.

CHINON
Bernard Baudry

Wine Spectator This has a prominent bay leaf note, along with a mix of olive and thyme accents amid the gently steeped cherry and red currant fruit. Brisk acidity carries the finish.

CHINON
'Les Grezeaux'
Bernard Baudry

JancisRobinson.com - Glorious perfume – like rubbing blackcurrant bush between your fingers with a bit of black pepper and catmint. Chewy and twiggy and lean and leggy. Crisp sour-red fruit, begging for a slice of saucisson.

"Les Pavillon de Grand Clos"
Yannick Amirault

Wine Spectator Well-layered, with singed spice and a lightly roasted apple wood frame around the core of mulled plum, blackberry and black currant fruit. Offers a flash of anise on the finish, revealing a buried acidity.

"La Petite Cave"
Yannick Amirault

Wine Spectator - This has melded nicely, showing a core of anise, blackberry and plum notes stitched with singed spice, smouldering tobacco and bramble accents. Reveals a buried iron note on the finish. Features solid grip and length.

St NICOLAS de BOURGUEIL
"La Mine"
Yannick Amirault

Wine Spectator - Ripe, fleshy and driven, with a delicious core of crushed plum, cassis and blackberry fruit lined with dark tobacco leaf, singed chestnut, violet, olive and rosemary. The long finish features a deeply embedded chalky spine, giving this definition while remaining supple.

    DOMAINE
de la BUTTE
RP -
Jacky Blot (better known for the Montlouis from his Domaine de la Taille Aux Loups), has operated the Domaine de la Butte in Bourgueil since 2002, quickly vindicating his choice of location as well as his red wine making talents.

BOURGUEIL
'Les Perrieres'
Domaine de la Butte

Not reviewed yet -  but from the proverbial “kidney of the slope” – and thus, effectively the grand cru of this domaine – This wine is clear and pure on the palate, with an alluring suggestion of creaminess, and a delightful interchange of floral, herbal and black fruit characteristics, it finishes long on richness but also refreshment.

    DOMAINE DES ROCHES NEUVES
This is a top biodynamic domaine run by Thierry Germain.
The reds are elegant but powerful; with a round full fruit taste with a long lasting finish.
The 'Terres Chaudes' is full and round with lovely red fruit taste.
These wines are best consumed with red meat dishes.
    These wines are very popular in France; so are very difficult to obtain for export to the UK.

The Revue du Vin de France (issue 513), considers this one of the best domaine's in the Loire.
No wonder they are sought after, especially as they are constantly sold-out as only small quantities are made.
