About This Wine...

The Wine

100% Chenin Blanc

A dry white named after the ancient village of Savennières. Slate and limestone soils on south-facing slopes overlooking the Loire in Anjou, near the city of Angers. Bone-dry, full bodied, assertive and lingering on the palate. No oak, its richness, complexity and age-ability place it among the world’s finest and most distinctive wines.

“Intense, stony citrus aromas, with a hit of lime essence, textured and full-flavoured, with ripe pear and chalky citrus flavours and honeyed notes on the finish. The Clos du Papillon is even more fascinating.” The Irish Examiner, July 2019

“…perfect to go with scallops, lobster and turkey. A wine to savour” The Irish Independent, 16th December 2017.

The Estate

Domaine des Baumard is based in the small town of Rochefort sur Loire, in the Anjou region of the Loire Valley. Most of the domaine’s production is from the Chenin Blanc grape, from which sparkling, dry, semi-dry and sweet wines are all produced. The Baumards, produce in the following white appellations: Anjou , Savennieres, Coteaux du Layon and Quarts de Chaume. The uneven ripening of the Chenin Blanc grape enables them to harvest at different times thus producing different styles.
This means of course that all harvesting is done by hand. Florent Baumard, who is in charge of the domaine, is without doubt one of the brightest stars of the whole of the Loire Valley . His approach to winemaking is that of a pragmatist who doesn’t ignore the past but also looks to the future. One thing he doesn’t believe in is the use of barrels for his Chenin Blanc. His wines therefore are always crisp and age beautifully whilst showing the full expression of Chenin fruit and the strong mineral core that is found in this part of the Loire.
Florent now bottles all his wines under screwcap.
