- Dom Des Baumard Savennieres 2012 Product #29715 (In Stock)
Savennieres, just across the river from the sweet wine region of Cote du Layon, is one of world's greatest sites for rich, wildly complex, and utterly dry Chenin Blanc. This is a brilliant introduction to the delights of Savennieres. Exotic aromas of peach, tart pear, green plum, honey suckle and crushed herb lead to bold flavors of peach, quince, honey, and bitter herb. Rich and nicely dense but bone dry through the long, wildly complex, finish.
- Dom Des Baumard Coteaux Du Layon Carte d'Or 2011 Product #28429 (In Stock)
A brilliant late-harvest Chenin that crackles with energy - drink with almond desserts or on it's own.
"This selection of grapes from old vines is presented as the least sweet and the lightest of Baumard\'s late-harvest wines. It\'s clean and dynamic, a heady, layered chenin with scents of jasmine, orange and apple butter. The juiciness comes up against soil-inflected acidity, a fine, sandy grit to ameliorate the sweetness. Pour it with a savory almond torte."Wine & Spirits 93 points
"The acidity is almost shocking, cutting through the richness of the wine. Its sweet apple and lemon flavors balance the honey and maple syrup notes. The wine is still young, demanding aging over a decade at least. beautifully ripe. Screwcap." Wine Enthusiast 92 points
