The Master of Chinon:
2018 Baudry Chinon La Croix Boissée

Posted by Joe Salamone

La Croix Boissée is one of the greatest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the entire Loire.

Baudry's style is beautifully detailed, vividly transparent, and refined. Croix Boissée is the perfect summation of their style.

La Croix Boissée is sourced from a hillside plot with limestone and clay soils on a chalk base. In Chinon, this terroir is home to the appellation's longest-lived wines. Baudry's La Croix Boissée always comes across with exacting detail and pristine clarity. It's a wine that speaks deeply and offers a compelling soulfulness and honesty.

The 2018 La Croix Boissée displays serious presence and length, but also a powerfully firm core of acidity and minerality. The harmony and completeness leaves you with the impression that this will be a great wine a decade from now.

Baudry is one of our favorite producers in the entire Loire. Year after year they craft some of the greatest expressions of Cabernet Franc. The 2018 La Croix Boissée is yet another monument to Baudry's unwavering skill.
