Winemaker's Notes

Domaine des Baumard produces some of the finest examples of Savennieres, and Jean Baumard and now his son, Florent, are universally regarded as the finest winemakers in the appellation. Their wines are among the most unique and rewarding in the world: this is a honeyed, dry white of unmatched concentration, perfume, and longevity.

Critical Acclaim

"Beautifully pure, with salted butter, chamomile and quinine notes lacing up a core of creamed Jonagold apple and lanolin flavors. The long, creamy finish lets the chamomile edge play out elegantly. Drink now through 2018."
92 Points

"I tasted the Baumard 2009 Savennieres as an approximation to its final shape, since some of the lots that either had not – or had only partly – undergone malo-lactic fermentation might well evolve further in that direction before the wine is bottled in September. At this early stage, the overall impression is soft and not especially focused, but there is compensatory richness of quince and pear fruit, nut oil richness, alluring creaminess of texture, and lily-of-the-valley-the-valley and iris floral perfume that wafts all the way through a sustained, wet stone-underlain finish. A hint of fresh lime serves for some sense of refreshment despite the wine’s overall softness, and as with the 2008, I sense less bitterness and greater buoyancy than in vintages a few years past.
Range : 89-90+"
