ONLINE WINEMAKER-LED TASTING SERIES: Domaine des Baumard with Florent Baumard
We are so excited to announce another fantastic series of ‘Meet the Winemaker’ online tasting sessions: Domaine des Baumard with Florent Baumard on Wednesday 27th May 6:00pm – 7:00pm and Wednesday 3rd June from 6:00pm – 7:00pm.
Domaine des Boumard of Loire, France
In a deeply traditional region, Florent's early adoption of screwcaps and different vine trellising systems marked him out as the enfant terrible of Savennières. His mantra now encompasses a belief in the individuality of each vintage, believing it should be made with minimal intervention to allow the wine to reflect its vintage and unique character. His Savennières from the famous vineyards of Clos St Yves and Clos du Papillon are rich, yet with a balance and elegance that are unrivalled. His top cuvée of ‘Trie Speciale’ is only made in very exceptional vintages when grape quality is optimal. It is a wine full of paradox, honeyed and yet dry, rounded and yet firm. The rich fruit, tremendous weight and concentration ensure that it is a thoroughly memorable experience.
