I'd like to bring to your attention a new service that we are offering here at VWM. A "Wine Geek Alert" is issued when we have access a high quality wine that has limited availability. Of course, we want to give our customers first opportunity to purchase.
The latest discovery is Domaine Bernard Baudry - Chinon "Les Granges" 2015 for $19.99 per bottle.
Baudry is an outstanding producer in Chinon. They work traditionally, farming organically and hand harvesting from excellent vineyard sites. "Les Granges" is a bottling from 30 year old vines in Cravant-les-Coteaux on gravel and sand with clay/silica subsoils. 100% Cabernet Franc, the wine sees no oak and is aged for about 6 months concrete vats. This is a pure and classic expression of Chinon with spicy berry and plum, hints of herbs and earthy graphite.
Michael was fortunate to be able to visit the Domaine in 2012 and happily tasted barrel samples with Matthieu Baudry who now makes the wines after taking over from his father.
Baudry's wines have increased in popularity in recent years and as such, supply has become more difficult. See this story about the domain. We currently have an allocation and access to the wine, unfortunately because of the high demand this is the only time this year we will be able to get 2015 "Les Granges".
The wine is available on a pre-paid basis, if you are interested just send us an email or give us a call. We'll confirm your order, charge your account, and hold the wine for pick up or delivery. Since we need to act quickly to secure the wine, the deadline for this offer is 12pm on Friday, February 10th.
