Top 10 wines in the UK press

Bernard Baudry Chinon, Loire, France 2010

2010-CHINON-Croix-Boissee-Domaine-Bernard-Baudry.240x700.7853David Williams, writing in The Guardian, recommended three Cabernet Franc wines this week – the “lesser known” counterpart to Sauvignon.

He said: “Historically, a lot of Loire Cabernet Franc has been, like Les Nivières, designed specifically for unthinking easy drinking, the kind of thing you get, slightly chilled, with your minute-steak in an unpretentious Parisian bistrot.
“But the Loire’s reds – from appellations such as Anjou, Saumur-Champigny, Chinon, Bourgeuil and St-Nicolas de Bourgeuil – have developed enormously in recent years, with its best growers now producing more serious wines that are easily on a par with Bordeaux and Burgundy for quality, but at much more reasonable prices.
“Bernard Baudry is one of the most consistent names in Chinon, and this silky starting point in his range has a soft plumpness to go with the quintessential cab franc graphite and subtle leafiness.”

Price: £14.50, Lea & Sandeman
