Daniel P. Drake

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! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

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.)

Sur lie 9-10 months. Wet wool, petrol, almond, with lime and blossom. Balanced and beautiful!

Blind-tasted. Thought it was 1995 Vouvray.

So elegant and light on the palate, this '11 had notes of wet stone and green apple and got a creamy texture as it opened. Great with the oysters and pearls at FL.

Not the best from Savennieres but can't go wrong with this wine. Honey, almond, oily notes. Warm body and long finish. Can age.

Nothing fancy. Just good, funky Chenin.
