"Florent Baumard produces this wine in top vintages, from the schist soils of Clos St-Yves. Bottled under screwcap, this shows no reduction, immediately presenting the aristocratic profile of a great Savennières in scents of Bosc pear and honey and a long line of schist acidity. It has tactile grace and only improves with air, growing more sophisticated over the course of several days as the delicate flavors glisten with purity and clarity. Baumard’s best chenins develop beautifully for more than a decade and this one is well worth cellaring."
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.
