Quarts De Chaume - Loire - drink or keep
1 fles DOMAINES DES BAUMARD 1976
(Robert Parker: 93)
100% Chenin Blanc
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.
