Baudry Chinon Les Granges
On Wednesday, we opened this for a couple of customers to try and finished the remainder of the bottle that night with a bowl of spaghetti carbonara - not necessarily the most obvious food and wine matching, but this is what happens on a Wednesday night in the real world where you eat and drink what is to hand.
Happily, everything worked well, the crisp acidity natural in Cabernet Franc cutting through the carbonara nicely. I really like Cabernet Franc and Baudry's wines are always in the top tier of what is on offer from Loire reds. Loads of fruit, crisp acidity and frim tannins make for a delicious food wine, perfect for summer, if we ever get one.
