Bright pale gold, aromas of minerals, green plum and creme brulle, flavor notes of flowers, pink grapefruit, green almonds and minerals...minerals for days. Great mouth feel with rich texture.

I must admit, this dessert wine had tiny nuances of my favorite dessert wine. The very similarity made it clear that Chaume wine for the value can be a terrific subsitute for other fine dessert wines.

Medium sweetness, but not overdone. Oily. Raisin, without the super-sweet Sauternes thing. Pear. Almost tastes fortified.

I had this at Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar in New York with .... oysters and other small plates. Really delicious. Opened up over time. We didn't chill it as the waiter recommended. I have no idea how it compares to other Chenin Blanc. I was disappointed to read in the Oxford Wine Encyclopedia that Chenin Blanc and most of the Loire Valley wines are deemed kind of weak. Thought I had discovered a new favorite. But then again it's too expensive for me to keep much of around.

Baumardrsquo;s ldquo;regularrdquo; (a.k.a. Clos St. Yves) 2008 Savennieres bursts from the glass in an exuberant bouquet of buddleia and apple blossom; quince and intimations of wet stone. This transcends the poise and clarity exhibited by several immediately preceding Clos du Papillon bottlings and suggests that mdash; chronologically speaking mdash; we have moved up into a new echelon of expressiveness. The bitter, piquant notes of toasted nut, quinine, white pepper, and fruit pit here are extremely subtle and integrated into a matrix of lusciously juicy pear, white peach, and quince. A salvia-inducing salinity and scallop-like sweetness ally themselves to the stony mineral elements in this winersquo;s long finishing colloquy with flowers and fruits, and there is a levity and refreshment mdash; a sheer drinkability mdash; that I have not noticed in previous Baumard Savennieres mdash; particularly pre-2007. Yet there is still ample sense of glycerin-richness and subtle oiliness.

Fresh and vibrant. Well-defined flavors of peach, almond and light vanilla are harmonious and balanced in this firm white. Has the liveliness and stuffing to match well with richer fish dishes. Drink now through 2002.

The 1997 Savenniegrave;res, which should be on retailerrsquo;s shelves by yearrsquo;s end, reveals white flower and orange rind aromas. This medium-bodied, opulently rich, broad, and well-crafted wine is filled with flavors reminiscent of acacia blossoms, tropical fruits, and pears. It is satin-textured, forward, and immensely appealing. This wine is accessible now. Drink it over the next 10 years.
