Domaine des Baumard Quarts de Chaume 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: `Baumard's 1997 Quarts de Chaume has been tasted five times over a six month period and it is a remarkably consistent wine. With extended aeration it appears to gain in focus and freshness a trait that is surprising in the generally heavy and super-ripe 1997 vintage. Caramelized minerals and honeyed aromas are exuded by this dense oily jammy wine. On the palate marzipan candied grapefruit and tropical fruits can de detected within its viscous yet fresh core. This massive offering will require some cellaring before reaching its peak. Drink it between 2003 and 2020.`

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
