Savennières is stealth Chenin. It is ever so much that white gravel people rake patterns in. And just as dry. Until a lemon is squeezed over and a pear and tangerine fall from the trees and a brisk wind wafts through carrying hints of the flower bushes blooming nearby. Oh damn and that raw Marcona almonds. It’s a goddamn garden party in early autumn. Bask. This Savennières looks lightweight but it’s white gold.

Lemon lime zippy acid a bit of RS. Simple but good food wine especially this sushi yum...

Insanely creamy and rich. Massive lees flavor.

Definitely a thinking wine. Reduced, but it opens up in the glass to reveal classic Chenin honeyed aromas. I'm not convinced by Baumard's all-screwcap policy - this wine would probably show better at the moment under cork (which may or may not be true in 10 years - but I'm not waiting around to find out.)

This afternoon our first wine is the 2015 Domaine de Baumard Savenniers. This Chenin Blanc is very well made and is a very easy drinker.

On the nose there is Apple, lemon/lime, peach, melon, mandarin orange and mineral notes.

On the palate there is yellow apple, pear, quince, lime, honey, lemon curd, a touch of oilyness and minerality.

This is a light bodied wine with medium + acidity with a long fresh finish. A beautiful Chenin Blanc with a touch of sweetness that is very easy to drink. Continued Happy Holidays and stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
