With our friends Jean and Nick we visited one of the Baudry-Dutour tasting rooms outside of Chinon after lunch that day about two weeks ago. Their wines were quite tasty and Jean bought a bunch, but since we had already filled up before lunch, we resisted the temptation.
Some of the wines we tried at Baudry Dutour.
Chinon is known mostly for its red wines made from cabernet franc grapes. They're hearty and full-bodied and very different from the lighter gamays that we're used to in our part of the Touraine region.
Living outside of Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher since 2003. You'll find here pictures and descriptions of our daily life in rural France, some travels, and other stuff about me, my husband Ken, our dog Callie, and our cat Bertie.
