DOMAINE GUY BAUDIN

aoc /APPELLATION: POUILLY-FUME, POUILLY SUR LOIRE

We are here in the famous Pouilly Fumé appellation, but the little village of “ les Loges” has no sign of ostentatious decors. It is a cluster of small stone houses almost touching each other. The village used to be a temporary living quarters for sailors using the Loire River to transport the Loire Valley wines to the cities.

Guy Baudin lives in one of theses small houses, his cellar is just beneath the living room.

The family Baudin owns a tiny domain of 24 acres from which only 2 acres are producing the appellation Pouilly sur Loire. Guy Baudin is not too much of a talker, he just knew since the age of eight that he will continue the family tradition going back to 1685. In our family, the wine has to speak for itself. The Pouilly Fumé appellation and “ The Loges” could not have found a better ambassador.

AOC/AOP

Two concepts central to higher end French wines are the notion of "terroir", which links the style of the wines to the specific locations where the grapes are grown and the wine is made, and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) France and (AOP) Appellation d’Origine Protégée Europe system. Appellation rules closely define which grape varieties and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or even specific vineyards.

We do not select wines based on them being organic, biodynamic, or sustainable, but many of the wines produced by our winemakres fall in to one or more of these categories. The US regulations for organic wines are different from the French regulations for organic wines. Therefore, the French organic wines can’t carry on the bottle the French organic logo. We will mentionned in our descriptif if the wine is labeled organic in France.
