The Baudry Cuv̩e Domaine has changed a bit over the years, now made mostly from parcels in Saint-Louans on classic limestone/clay soils with the addition of juice from gravel terroir, giving a more structured wine that ages beautifully but also drinks well young. ("Chameaux" and "Moli̬re" in Saint-Louans and "Clos Testu" in Chinon near Le Clos Guillot.) In 2012 the Baudry reds are low in alcohol, with lovely purity and fabulous mineral expression. It's an excellent vintage for the Domaine cuv̩e, showing deep black/red color with aromas of blackberry, prune, violet, menthol, pepper and smoke. Deep black and red fruits on the palate, very dense but relatively light at 12.5% alcohol and framed in cool acidity. This is really showing the terroir - a beautiful blend of graphite, stone and black fruits in the long finish. Lovely now in a somewhat austere style, this should be very interesting in five to ten years or more. (After three days re-corked in the fridge, the wine has fattened up with sweet blackberry and cassis followed by a nice mineral finish - really delicious!) Less wine is available this year so don't delay putting away a case! (Organic farming, natural composts, hand harvested, wild yeast fermentation, aging in five to ten year-old vat and barrel.)
