Florent Baumard was mentioned in a recent article in Wine Spectator, titled “High Pair – The Loire Valley bounces back from a string of trying harvests with the ripe 2015 and racy 2016 vintages”, in its Nov 15 issue. The story features a prominent half-page photo of Florent in his vineyards, carrying a wooden case of Baumard wines on his bicycle.

Below is an excerpt from the article.

“’Both 2015 and 2016 were great in quality, despite the fact that we lost a lot of grapes,’ says Florent Baumard of Domaine des Baumard in Savennieres. ‘Soft, round and generous wines in 2015, which reminds me of 2005. Sharper and lighter, it seems, in 2016. Too early to say, but I personally like it very much at this stage.’

The Domaine des Baumard Savennieres 2015 (94, $30) has a creamy feel, with alluring pear, quince and green almond flavors, showing the slightly more forward personality of the vintage.”
