Quarts de Chaume Baumard.JPG

2012 Quarts De Chaume, Baumard, Half Bottle

Chenin Blanc

We have a soft spot for the incredible Chenin Blancs from Baumard and gems such as this truly spectacular wine highlight the quality of winemaking at this Domaine.  Baumard eschew traditional trellising methods for this part of the Loire and have also flown in the face of tradition by switching excluisively to screwcaps for their range.  The Quarts de Chaume vineyard enjoys a superb terroir and a unique situation producing wines of rare elegance.  This remarkable wine is wonderfuly textured and manages to comine power and clarity alongside richness and precision. Complex with floral bouquets and notes of citrus and orchard fruit with impeccable acidity, this is a wine to savour.

Coteaux du Layon  Carte dOr.JPG

2021 Carte d’Or, Baumard, AC Coteaux du Layon, Half Bottle

Chenin Blanc

The Carte d'Or Coteaux du Layon from Baumard has a very attractive honeyed nose, with lifted yellow fruits and more golden tropical elements such as mango, guava and pineapple. It has a particularly tropical character and a very fresh feel on the palate, with steely minerality and a zippy background acidity giving invigorating tartness to keep the wine luscious and buoyant. The rounded, approachable finish has good length.

2020 Pouilly Fume Lebrun.JPG

2023 Pouilly Fume, Domaine Lebrun

Sauvignon Blanc

This fabulous Pouilly Fume is at once classic yet remains distinctive when tasted against other Pouilly Fumes at a similair price point.  The nose offers an alluring mix of gunflint, wet stone and citrus fruit.  Crisp and tangy on the palate with a mineral, smoky finish.  Laurent Lebrun was trained as a winemaker at Montpellier, spent his formative years training in Australia and then returned to France to take up the position of General Manager and Head Winemaker at Château Olivier, Grand Cru Classé in Bordeaux. He has recently home and  become the 6th Generation of Lebrun to run the family estate in Pouilly-Fumé.  The estate has a total of 9 hectares on the slopes of St. Andelain and teh vines average 25 years of age.
