Baumard Coteaux du Layon "Cuvee Ancienne Carte d'Or" NV

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine some time ago from Leon Stolarski Fine wines but it was so long ago that I have now forgotton how much he charged me for it.Domaine Baumard is a large estate close to the river Layon,a tributary of the Loire,about 20kmsouth-west of the town of Angers that has been in the same family since the early 17th century and is now run by father and son team Jean and Florent.La Cuvee Ancienne is their top wine and does not have a year on the label because it is a blend of many vintages.It is 100% chenin blanc that is harvested late in order to allow the development vof a fungus called botrytis which contributes to the sweet taste.I drtank my bottle with a plate of bread and cheese and I have to say that I liked it.It is very sweet with notes of honey,apricot and vanilla with a hint of a citrus flavour.
