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.

Delivers fresh-cut pear and green melon flavors, with a hint of lanolin framing the finish. This opens steadily with air, showing salted butter notes and minerality along the way. Well done for the 2,000 cases made. -JM Wine Spectator. A Chenin Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2008 Domaine des Baumard Savennieres Clos du Papillon 750ml

The Baumard 2008 Savennieres Clos du Papillon has a hard act to follow given the quality of the vintage's "standard" bottling. Pronounced nutty piquancy and wet stone in the nose as well as on the palate here mingle with smoky snuffed candle wick and... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

A reserved style, delivering green fig and green plum flavors held in check for now by honeysuckle and mineral notes. The stylish finish has deceptive length.

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

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
