Tasting Notes

  • RP

    Robert Parker, August 1999,
    Score: 94

    Baumard's 1997 Quarts de Chaume has been tasted five times over a six month period and it is a remarkably consistent wine. With extended aeration it appears to gain in focus and freshness, a trait that is surprising in the generally heavy and super-ripe 1997 vintage. Caramelized minerals and honeyed aromas are exuded by this dense, oily, jammy wine. On the palate, marzipan, candied grapefruit, and tropical fruits can de detected within its viscous, yet fresh, core. This massive offering will require some cellaring before reaching its peak. Drink it between 2003 and 2020.

Quarts de Chaume

This is a tiny enclave within the Coteaux du Layon appellation in the Loire is noted for its extraordinary sweet, botrytized Chenin Blancs. The poor schistous soil, southerly exposure, and a high proportion of old vines ensure extremely low yields, and resulting in huge concentration in the wines which can age elegantly for decades.
