94  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 94"Alluring, with quince, creamed pear, verbena and green almond flavors allied to a creamy texture, all offset beautifully through the finish by light quinine and mineral hints. Approachable, but this seems built for the cellar. Best from 2018 through 2030.—J.M.”

Domaine des Baumard Savennieres 2012
Wine Domaine des Baumard produces some of the finest examples of Savenieres, and Jean Baumard and now his son, Florent, are universally regarded as the finest winemakers in the appellation. Their wines are among the most unique and rewarding in the world: honeyed, dry whites of unmatched

Domaine des Baumard Savennieres 2011
" Domaine des Baumard is situated right in the heart of the Anjou, in the town of Rochefore-Sur-Loire, just south of the town of Savennieres itself. The property has been in the Baumard family since 1634, but it was reconstituted and improved by Jean Baumard in the mid-1950s. Since 1992 the estate

Wine Spectator 91 "A bright, engaging style, exhibiting fresh-cut Anjou pear, green almond, fig and brioche notes laced with a hint of butter. Offers a long, pure, honeysuckle-filled finish. Drink now through 2015." 1,200 cases imported.  Wine & Spirits 92 A super vintage of Baumard's basic

Domaine des Baumard Quart de Chaume 1998
94  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 94 “Lovely crystalline like purity to this Loire white, with orange and cherry blossom weaving through citrus flavors and notes of almond and honey. It’s high toned but has plenty of intensity, with a core of ripe, focused acidity allowing it to hang together in a wonderful balance.”

Domaine des Baumard Quart de Chaume 1992
"The first vintage made by Florent Baumard, and it displays one of the great strengths of this wine: even in less than great vintages, the wine is remarkable, with the pedigree emerging over time. An especially floral wine, full of finesse and charm." ~Winery Notes

Domaine des Baumard Quarts de Chaume 2006
92  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 92  “Very fresh, with lots of enticing, fresh-cut citrus and tropical fruits – orange, clementine, mango, papaya – all driven by mouthwatering acidity and superbright minerality.”  “Domaine des Baumard’s pure, satiny Quarts de Chaume continues to be the reference point for the

92  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 92"Beautifully pure, with salted butter, chamomile and quinine notes lacing up a core of creamed Jonagold apple and lanolin flavors. The long, creamy finish lets the chamomile edge play out elegantly. Drink now through 2018. 1,200 cases imported." ~ JM

Domaine des Baumard Clos de Sainte Catherine 2007
92  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 92"A very fresh, lively style, with zippy acidity enlivening the apricot, white peach, green plum and quince flavors. The fresh, floral-tinged finish is nearly perky before the fruit takes over again. Drink now through 2017. 500 cases made."

 Robert Parker 89 " Pronounced cyanic, fruit pit bitterness and wet stone are prominent in Baumard’s 2007 Savennieres, which when combined with an alkaline aspect definitely pull this in an austere direction. But ripe apple, quince, and peach supply an equal and opposite fruit reaction, which

94  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 94"Ripe and stylish, with fig, pear tartine and green plum flavors gliding along a lovely, creamy palate. Its accessibility belies the vibrant minerality on the finish for now; this should be cellared a bit. Best from 2008 through 2015. 1,415 cases made." ~J.M.

Domaine des Baumard Cuvee Le Paon 2005
Wine Specatator 95"Very enticing, with quince, pear, persimmon and fig aromas and flavors. Yet this is never heavy, only pure and refined, with a lovely, caressing finish. The acidity is really buried, and this should cruise in the cellar. Drink now through 2027. 1,000 cases made." ~J.M.

Domaine des Baumard Savennieres 2008
92  Robert Parker 
Robert Parker 92 "Baumard's "regular" (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

Domaine des Baumard Clos du Papillon 2008
95  Wine Enthusiast 
Robert Parker 92 "The Baumard 2008 Savennieres Clos du Papillon has a hard act to follow given the quality of the vintages 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 black tea; quince and white

96  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 96"This has a very powerful, concentrated core of almond, white peach, honeysuckle, mineral and candied lemon peel, but all meshed perfectly together on a creamy, porcelain texture and glides effortlessly through the finish. Extremely long and finely detailed."

93  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 93"Very plump and showy up front, with apricot, papaya and mango, then offering more zip and delineation on the back end, with mineral and floral notes adding length to the rich finish, where a nice echo of unctuous fruit lingers. Drink now through 2019. 1,500 cases made." JM
