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. 

 

This is a remarkable wine, with prodigious concentration and depth. Impressive now this will cellar potentially for decades. It is an astonishing wine. Drink now to 2022+ 

 

'Among the standouts released this past year are Florent Baumard's perennially outstanding late-harvest Chenin Blanc bottlings... Very plump and showy up front, with apricot, papaya and mango notes, then offers more zip and delineation on the back end, with mineral and floral notes on the rich finish. 93 points' James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator 

 

'99/100 points - A prodigy! ...[for the second year running] classed the third best wine in France. Best wine in the Loire Valley. Best Sweet wine in France....Last year we were amazed by the success of the domaine in a difficult vintage (2006). In a more classic year (2007), the Quarts de Chaume of the Baumard family straightforwardly touches perfection, retaining all its beauty even several hours after opening. Spectacular, mythical!' Lafont Presse, Les Meilleurs Vins de France Annee 2011.
