Winemaker Notes

The sweet wines of Domaine des Baumard are from vineyards planted along the Layon river, which flows northwest into the Loire. The perfectly exposed vineyards in the appellation Coteaux du Layon allow the Chenin Blanc grape to ripen perfectly in most years, often enriched by the development of botryitis.

The single-vineyard 'Clos de Sainte Catherine', produced almost every year, is highlighted by a compelling minerality and extraordinarily long life in great vintages.

Can be consumed by itself in a tasting. Suitable for a refined aperitif with toast with foie gras or blue cheese. Delicious with melons, pears, poached peaches or tarts.

Wine Spectator
This powerful white marries concentration and verve. It's very sweet, with flavors of dried pineapple, raisin and honey, but a lively streak of acidity keeps it fresh and clean. Delicious now, better later.

Domaine des Baumard, Loire, France
Image of winery
The Baumard family has been wine growing wine at Rochefort in the Anjou for centuries, working with the noble Chenin in what has long been accepted as its natural home, the slate-covered hillside vineyards along the Loire and Layton rivers. In 1953, the Baumard family acquired a vineyard in the Quarts de Chaume, and in 1968, purchased substantial acreage in Savennieres. Jean Baumard, an enologist and educator, as well as grower, introduced significant innovations to the winemaking region, bringing the dry wines of Savennieres, as well as his sweet wines, Quarts de Chaumes and Coteaux du Layon back to prominence. Now in retirement, further innovation has been carried on by Jean's son, Florent.
