Patrick Baudouin  (2008)  

For anyone who loves the wines of the Coteaux du Layon, Patrick Baudouin will be a familiar name. He owns vines in three separate communes here, but the 2008 vintage sees a departure into Savennières. The wine comes from three separate parcels of 25 year old vines which are certified organic. The wine is raised in second and third fill barrels.

2009 Savennières
Integrated oak. Honest and authentic with linear acidity. Very good focus and length. Taut, yet approachable. Well made but would benefit with some time. Very crisp and mineral finish. Shows potential. (02/11)

2008 'La Vannières'
Light, soft and creamy nose. Proper and representative of the appellation. Clean, but still pretty restrained. High toned on entry with some volatile acidity showing. The flavour profile is of baked apples. Lively acidity to the finish although the oak still needs time to meld into the wine. Taut and juicy and in need of time. (02/10)
