The following day I dropped into Oddbins and picked up the 2008 Chinon, Domaine de la Roncée , Baudry-Dutour (£11.99) – the first time I have tasted this 2008 Chinon since it was bottled. Medium weight this 2008 is drinking well now with attractively bright, red fruits and some length. It can also be kept for at least another two or three years. Oddbins appear to be the only UK company stocking this wine as there is no UK entry on wine-searcher for it.
Report on Baudry-Dutour based on visit in March 2009.
