Domaine des Baumard Clos du Papillon Savennieres 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Wine Spectator Insider: `This is still two wines with some upfront quince and pear flavors then followed by more reserved mineral and chalk dust notes. Notes of green melon sweetened butter and lime candy add complexity but some cellaring is needed to bring this fully into focus. Drink now through 2013.` Savennires is a tiny region located on the northern banks of the Loire River just across from the town of Rochefort Sur Loire. The entire appellation consists of fewer than 200 acres (77 hectares) of vines all planted to Chenin Blanc. The South/Southeast facing vineyards are planted on unique soils composed of schistous volcanic debris mixed with sandstone and granite imparting a strong intensely original minerality to the Chenin Blanc grape. Maximum permitted yields are the lowest in France for dry whites (25 Hectoliters per Hectare) resulting in wines of stunning concentration and perfume. The combination of this concentration with the naturally high acidity of the Chenin Blanc grape resul

A wonderful example of an artisan wine under $30. Concentrated flavor upfront with touches of golden apple, lime and mineral. Was a great pairing with Chicken in white wine cream sauce with cremini mushrooms.

Shows very typical characteristics of chenin blanc - some vegetal notes, green apples and wet wool. I would wait for this one to develop flavors of honey and toast,, well I'm not a big fan of dry chenin blanc while its still young.

Plump up front, with melon, quince and pear flavors. Also has lots of buried minerality waiting in reserve, with notes of quartz and lime flickering through the medium-weight finish. Approachable, but should gain better definition with cellaring. Dri... Wine Spectator. A Chenin Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2005 Domaine des Baumard Savennieres Clos du Papillon 750ml
