37. Domaine Des Baumard 1976, 1 bottle

Quarts De Chaume - Loire - drink or keep


(Robert Parker: 93)

100% Chenin Blanc

filling: -2
label: ok
capsule: 'slightly' stained

Tasting Notes: July 2011

Medium gold color. The nose is complex, fascinating, but very difficult to describe. Especially aromas of honey, varnish, and lemon.

Palate shows honey, ginger, and lemon notes with a bitter citrus rind element on a medium-long finish. there are notes of straw and a dried, honey richness; it is a wine of character, but not necessarily great sweetness. The sweetness remains in this and a bit of fresh cow-milk cheese remedies the bitter component and really let's this wine shine. Very nicely integrated acidity, with richness but only gentle sweetness.

A medium-sweetness experience now with a pretty good structure suggesting additional bottle age won't detriment this wine. Fully mature and ready. Drink or hold.
