Quarts de Chaume Chenin Blanc 1996

Pretty evolved, going by color alone it looks past it, but sweet, ripe fruit, lovely flavors, mature, time to drink. — a month ago

Baumard is great, yes they want time. Our oldest QdC's are mid-00's. I think a 20Y wait is generally justified.

Beautiful colour, Layon Chaume is always a gem in the cellar.

Bold with honeyed apricot, but not heavy like sauternes. It is amazing with rich foods, such as foie gras — 3 years ago

RONCERAY Anjou Chenin Blanc 2020

Dry Chaume! It’s like a reductive, lean brother to Savennieres. It has a tense/saline nose with fresh apples, hazelnuts, flint and smoke. Palate is minerally and super focused, persistent acidity, alcohol in balance. It will take time to develop — 3 months ago

Savennières Chenin Blanc 2017

Really like this Wine, tasting ‘17 & ‘18 together, ‘17 notes. The Baumard family growing the noble Chenin at Rochefort in the Anjou for centuries, in 1953 they acquired a vineyard in the Quarts de Chaume, & in 1968, purchased acreage in Savennieres. Straw with full fruit and light spice aromas. On the palate ripe apple, pear & melon, complex, with vivid acidity. Lingering, ending with mineral and sweet honey character. Wow. A white that should age well. Had ‘16 a while ago, and also great! — 2 years ago
