    Crafted under the meticulous hands of Winemaker Florent Baumard, Domaine Des Baumard Quarts De Chaume 2017 emerges as a true testament to the artistry of Chenin Blanc. This exquisite nectar hails from the Quarts de Chaume PDO, a prestigious appellation where the terroir of sandstone schists, quartz, rhyolites, and spilites lends its unique character to the wine.

    In the glass, the wine showcases a resplendent yellow gold hue, setting the stage for an olfactory journey. The nose is adorned with the scents of ripe peach, succulent apricot, and delicate white flowers, forming a harmonious bouquet that speaks of the vineyard’s organic cultivation and manual harvesting.

    Upon the palate, the vibrance of youth dances with elegance. Fresh fruit aromas burst forth ” notes of juicy peach, nectarine, and mirabelle plum create a symphony of flavor, while underlying hints of acacia flowers add an enchanting layer of complexity. This wine exudes a crystalline and youthful profile, promising to evolve gracefully with time.

    The vine’s roots reach deep into the essence of Quarts de Chaume AOP, capturing its rare breed and elegance. With a texture that seamlessly marries power and clarity, richness and precision, this wine embodies the essence of the Loire Valley’s greatest expression. Floral bouquets intertwine with citrus and orchard fruit notes, creating a harmonious tapestry that lingers through a finish that seems to never fade.

    Acclaimed by the discerning palates of critics, this vintage of Domaine Des Baumard Quarts De Chaume garnered a remarkable 97 points from Wine and Spirits. Meanwhile, Wine Spectator awarded it a generous 94 points, praising its unctuous nature and its diverse spectrum of flavors. This masterpiece embodies the dedication of the winery, the finesse of its terroir, and the genius of its winemaker, Florent Baumard.

    1. Rebecca Richmond

      Fun stand-in for a Sauternes. The somm brought this over at the end of a nice meal of tapas and various Spanish and Italian dry wines. Lots of apricot and canteloupe. Terrific, sweet digestif.

    2. WS

      This unctuous white shows a myriad of flavors, with hints of matchstick weaving through the glazed yellow apple, plum, and pineapple flavors, flanked with blanched almond, mineral, honeysuckle and chamomile accents. Crystalized ginger and herb notes echo on the long finish. Drink now through 2036.

    3. WAS

      The Baumards farm 15 acres of terraced, 35-year-old vines in Quarts des Chaume on the steep, south facing hillside above the Layon river. Spring frosts reduced their yields by about 60 percent, and what remained fermented all in stainless, and produced something spectular. This wine’s aromas are coy, hinting at a jam made with an Edenic bounty: apricot, peach, pear and ginger with a floral edge. Then a taste completely fills your head, tucking that bounty of fruit into every corner of your skull until it feels like your brain is cushioned in a cloud. There’s sweetness, yes, but it’s just a brown-sugar depth rather than a driving force in the wine. You might pour this with funky, soft cheeses at the end of a meal or alongside a main course of roasted duck with red-wine-braised pears and charred greens. But it’s also vibrant enough to drink on its own long into the night.
