Domaine des Baumard Savennières 2017 (90 JD)
“The base 2017 Savennières from Baumard is outstanding, offering pretty notes of golden apples, pears, hazelnuts, wet stones, and a touch of brioche. Nicely textured, medium-bodied, and beautifully balanced on the palate, it has a remarkable sense of purity and precision and is a joy to drink. Despite the upfront appeal, I suspect it will evolve for a solid decade in cold cellars.”
Domaine des Baumard
Loire Valley, France
Domaine des Baumard has been planted with vines since 1634, and has remained in the same family since then. In the mid-20th century, however, is when the estate started to build a reputation as one of the greatest white wine producers in the Loire Valley, and the world.
