Baumard Quarts de Chaume 2010 (HALVES)

"Unctuous, concentrated and refined, this holds a large core of quince, creamed Anjou pear and white ginger notes..." - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator Insider
Family-owned since 1634, Domaine des Baumard is one of the finest estates in the Loire, if not France as a whole. Florent aims to pick at the same level of ripeness and vinify in exactly the same way each year without the use of oak, and yet each vintage is remarkably distinctive. This natural terroir-driven approach allows the hallmark of each vintage to shine through. He is a supporter of the screwcap and after much testing, has decided that this is the best option for all his long-lived wines, as it allows them to evolve and develop over time without the worry of cork issues. Quarts de Chaume is made only from a strict selection of nobly rotted Chenin Blanc grapes from his vineyard on the valley sides of the Layon River. Compared to France's other great desesrt wines this is a comparative bargain. Drink now to 2030+.

Tasting Notes

"Unctuous, concentrated and refined, this holds a large core of quince, creamed Anjou pear and white ginger notes in reserve for now, while heather, chamomile, orange blossom and white peach flavors take the lead. When the reserves stretch out and catch up with the floral accents, this will be a pure, precise stunner, with a long life." - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator Insider
