Lot #401. Bernard Baudry Chinon Les Grézeaux 2015

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: France, Loire, Chinon.
Score: 93+ JG.
"The 2015 Chinon “les Grézeaux” from Domaine Bernard Baudry is a superb wine in the making. Not surprisingly, given the iconic status of the Baudry family in Cravant-lès-Coteaux, this wine is absolutely classic in all regards, offering up a deep and nascently complex nose of cassis, sweet dark berries, a bit of tobacco leaf, gravelly soil tones, a touch of tree bark and a fine topnote of cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and very pure in its expression of both ripe fruit and soil, with a rock solid core, well-integrated tannins and a very long, complex and soil-driven finish. This is accessible out of the blocks, but as is always the case with the les Grézeaux bottling from the Baudrys, this is a wine built for the cellar and its apogee is probably eight to ten years out from today. A dynamite bottle." John Gilman, View From the Cellar #77, Oct 2018
Provenance: The Bilten Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $70
