Tasting Notes

    Wine Advocate, August 2007,
    Score: 92/100

    Given a hard act to follow in the 2004, Baumard’s 2005 Quarts de Chaume displays the most obviously botrytized, white raisin, and shriveled fruit character of any of their recent wines that I tasted. Over-ripe melon and pear, candied grapefruit, marzipan and raisin are accented by brown spices and herbal candy notes. Impressively lush and long, this should evolve interestingly over up to two decades, but will doubtless remain relatively plump and baroque in character.

Region

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.
