A bit bretty, but in a good way. Always a rustic wine, this vintage (today) seems a little less pretty than usual. Still delicious, tho. ETA: A day later, the Brett has retreated a touch and this is much more it's normal self. Hold or decant early.

A good example of Franc. A bit horsey to start. Soft, expressive.

Incredible wine. Perfectly balanced, hard to go past something this good for this price.

Brett and a bit of a pedio problem or maybe troubled malo. But it still tastes nice.

2012 vintage... red bell pepper on the nose. Full of bell peppers throughout, and hint of dark fruit. Savory and lots of acidity to balance the soft tannins. I gave this. 8.9, but brother in law thinks it's a 9.1.

Baudrys’ “no-name” Chinon cuvée buoyantly and mouthwateringly captures inimitable layering of Loire Cabernet Franc: bittersweet floral perfume; pungent green herbs; tangy dark berries; savory singed lamb; salt and iodine. Perfect for winter’s “wine-killing” dark leafy greens and root vegetables.(DS)
