Baumard’s Le Logis Anjou Rouge is produced from fruit grown in the estate vineyards directly behind the home (Le Logis) as well as from neighboring estate vineyards 15 acres in total. The soils here are a type of old volcanic stone known as Greseaux Schist, which imparts strong minerality and gentle smokiness to the wine. Note that in great vintages (1989, 1997, 2005, 2018) the home vineyard parcel – known as Clos de la Folie – is bottled separately. In most vintages yields are well below the AOC maximum, averaging about 2.5-3.0 tons per acre.
Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer
Domaine des Baumard is situated right in the heart of the Anjou, in the town of Rochefort-Sur-Loire, just south of Savennières itself. The property has been in the Baumard family since 1634, but it was reconstituted and improved by Jean Baumard in the mid-1950s. Since 1992 the Estate has been run with meticulous care by Jean’s son, Florent, and the Domaine is now regarded as one of the best producers in the Loire Valley and one of the greatest producers of white wine in the world.
