Bernard Baudry founded his eponymous estate in the early 1980's with a couple inherited hectares. After graduating from the Lycée de Beaune he quickly rose to prominence in the appellation for precise, textured Chinon. Today, Bernard is technically retired (vignerons never really retire) and his son Matthieu, who has been making wine with his father since 2000, has taken over as head vigneron.

Over the years, the father and son team's fascination with Chinon's diverse terroirs have led them to expand the estate to its current 32 hectares. "Croix Boisée" comes from the Baudry's "Grand Cru" vineyards, two hectares exposed full south on clay and
limestone. Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc is planted here and two separate wines are produced under the "Croix Boisée" label. These are are a much more structured affair, hence their fermentation and aging in barrel.
