Baumard Savennieres Clos de St Yves 2016
Domaine des Baumard is tucked away in the village of Rochefort-sur-Loire, which lies at the northern end of the Coteaux du Layon appellation. The wines from Savennieres are characterised by their acidic
austerity, structure and longetivity. As they age in bottle they take on a waxy, honeyed nature. They are some of the most characterful wines you can find.
The wine is very approachable, although it is very young by Savennieres standards! Very leesy/creamy first impression, with a hint of honey. Has all the crisp acidity of the appellation and Chenin Blanc, with bright, very very crisp apple fruit.
Region: Savennières, Loire, France
Grape: Chenin Blanc
