100% Cabernet Franc. Croix Boissée is in Cravant, near the winery, on a south-exposed slope overlooking the Vienne River. The Baudry parcels total 3.1 hectares of low-yielding vines, ranging from 15 to 40 years old, on clay soils rich in white tuffeau (soft limestone) and iron. The farming is certified-organic. All vineyard work, including harvest, is by hand. The fruit is destemmed without crushing and moved by gravity into unlined cement vats. Fermentation is spontaneous with native yeasts and without sulfur or temperature control; maceration lasts up to 3 weeks with occasional pumpovers and no punchdowns. The wine is then aged in 1-3-year-old barriques for 2 years and bottled without filtration. Sulfur usage is minimal. Organic.
