Baumard 'Clos St Yves' Savennières 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Family-owned since 1634, Domaine des Baumard is one of the finest estates in the Loire, if not France as a whole. Florent aims to pick at the same level of ripeness and vinify in exactly the same way each year without the use of oak, and yet each vintage is remarkably distinctive. This natural terroir-driven approach allows the hallmark of each vintage to shine through. He is a supporter of the screwcap and after much testing, has decided that this is the best option for all his long-lived wines, as it allows them to evolve and develop over time without the worry of cork issues. Clos St Yves is often overlooked in favour of the more renowned Clos du Papillon. There are just 200 yards between the vineyards and the standard of both in recent vintages has been uniformly high. Clos St Yves is approachable earlier and based purely on quality it is a comparative bargain. 'Pale gold. Pure nose revealing inviting minerality and jammy white fruit perfumes. Savoury palate with superb substance and racy, expressive flavours as its main calling cards. Such deft craftmanship creates a deliciously refined, long-lasting treat.’ 93 points, Gilbert & Gaillard. Enjoy now to 2023.
