'The 2011 Savennières Clos du Papillon is a rich, fruit intense and powerful, but also very elegant and mineral, perfectly balanced Chenin with everything in place to age superbly.

Domaine des Baumard is situated right in the heart of the Anjou, in the town of Rochefort-Sur-Loire, just south of Savennières itself. The property has been in the Baumard family since 1634, but it was reconstituted and improved by Jean Baumard in the mid-1950s. Since 1992 the Estate has been run with meticulous care by Jean’s son, Florent, and the Domaine is now regarded as one of the best producers in the Loire Valley and one of the greatest producers of white wine in the world.
