A Legendary Grézeaux In The Making - Magnum Edition:
2018 Baudry Chinon Les Grézeaux Magnums

Posted by Joe Salamone

Baudry is one of our favorite producers in the entire Loire. Year after year, they craft some of the greatest expressions of Cabernet Franc.

Still, the 2018 Grézeaux is special.

We always expect a lot from Baudry's Grézeaux, but simply put, the 2018 Grezeaux is stunning. It's a vintage where magnums are essential.

Baudry's style is beautifully detailed, vividly transparent, and refined. What we love about the Grézeaux bottling is its honesty, edgy minerality, and the combination of immediate textural appeal and the ability to age beautifully for decades.

Grézeaux comes from 50 to 60-year-old vines on gravel soils that sit over sand and limestone. The 2018 boasts an incredible length and mid-palate punch. There's an undeniable impression of completeness to it. Its harmony and drive deeply impresses. Dark fruits mingle with earth, minerality, and spice. It is beautifully integrated and simply delicious.

The 2018 Grézeaux really highlights just how skillful the winemaking at Baudry is. The 2018 is so masterfully composed that it seems destined to be legendary.

We offered bottles of the 2018 Grézeaux last June and are really excited to be able to offer magnums. There's no doubt that it will shine out of the magnum format for the next couple of decades and beyond.
