Domaine des Baumard Savennières 2018 (90 W&S)
“Most of the grapes for this wine come from the 15 acres of Clos Saint Yves vineyard, between the Clos du Papillon and La Roche Aux Moines. Fresh and savory, this wine has a saline finish with lemon-thyme scents that – next to some crab legs – would brighten up an overcast spring beach day.”
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.
