The Master of Chinon:
2020 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 2020 Croix Boissée shows an intensity, grandeur, and lift that’s simply shocking. It has such presence and length, but also a powerfully firm core of acidity and minerality. The harmony and completeness really leave you with the impression that this will be a great wine a decade from now.

Baudry is one of our favorite producers. Year after year, they craft some of the greatest expressions of Cabernet Franc. The 2020 La Croix Boissée is yet another monument to Baudry's unwavering skill.
