Domaine de Hautes Baigneux - Les Pentes 2019
Everything you could want from a Loire red at this price. Fresh with juicy Gamay fruit, Grolleau spice and the dark fruit and leaf of Cabernet Franc. Delicious drinking.
The Producer: Philippe Mesnier and Nicolas Grosbois purchased 12 hectares of vines in Azay-le-Rideau in 2013. Nicolas, born and bred in the area, has always seen a lot of potential in this relatively unknown terroir a few kilometres east of Chinon. The duo immediately began farming the vines organically and achieved certification in recent years. They want to share what Azay-le-Rideau can showcase, with its clay and limestone terroir ideal for Chenin.
