Domaine des Baumard Savennieres 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

89+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The 2012 Savennières from Domaine des Baumard is a very strong effort for this difficult vintage and today, is showing no ill effects from its screwcap. The bouquet is bright and deep, wafting from the glass in a blend of grapefruit, quince, lovely soil tones and orange peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and nicely balanced, with a fine core, good acids (particularly for a 2012), blossoming complexity and lovely length and grip on the focused and nicely balanced finish. The alcohol here is an even thirteen percent and the wine is nicely precise and soil-driven as a result. I would not suggest holding it long-term, as this closure's track record is not great, but for drinking over the near-term, this is really a very, very successful 2012 Savennières. 2015-2018. (Sep/Oct 2015)
