Winemaker Notes

An intense dry wine, with structure and complexity. The white fruits and minerality come through this structured body, yet have an appealing roundness that becomes more apparent with air and time.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Domaine des Baumard Savennières is on target as one of the top wines from this appellation. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits focused aromas and flavors of dried plant leaves, savory spices, dried earth, and herbs. Try it with steamed clams in a ginger garlic sauce. (Tasted: October 11, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits

Most of the grapes for this chenin come from the 15-acre Clos Saint-Yves vineyard, between the Clos du Papillon and La Roche Aux Moines. Fresh and savory, this wine has a saline finish with lemon thyme scents that—next to some crab legs— would brighten up an overcast day

JS 91
James Suckling

Intriguing aromas of orange peel, nutmeg, gunpowder and lemon pith. Medium-bodied with silky texture and a crisp, long finish. Fresh, elegant and supple. Drink or hold. Screw cap.


WS 90
Wine Spectator

This balanced white is clean and pure, with a refreshing profile, but also shows depth, with flavors of apple and peach, as well as hints of lanolin that linger on the minerally finish, bringing you back for another sip.

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.

Known for its delightful whites and sparkling Pétillant and Mousseux, made predominantly of Chenin blanc, Anjou has a temperate and dry maritime climate. The region's limited temperature variations are admiringly referred to locally as the “douceur angevine,” or “Anjou sweetness.” Fruit forward rosé and red wines from Cabernet Franc and Gamay merit Anjou its success within the Loire subregions.

Unquestionably one of the most diverse grape varieties, Chenin Blanc can do it all. It shines in every style from bone dry to unctuously sweet, oaked or unoaked, still or sparkling and even as the base for fortified wines and spirits. Perhaps Chenin Blanc’s greatest asset is its ever-present acidity, maintained even under warm growing conditions. Somm Secret—Landing in South Africa in the mid 1800s, today the country has double the acreage of Chenin Blanc planted compared to France. There is also a new wave of dedicated producers committed to restoring old Chenin vines.
