Domaine hosted a sit-down tasting with Florent Baumard of Domaine des Baumard. It was a great chance to get to know one of the big names of the Loire. All in all, I was not too thrilled with the Savennières wines, as for the most part, they seemed to lack acidity and were all big wines without any of the raciness that I like in my chenin blanc. On the other hand, the Quarts de Chaume sweeties must be some of the best values in brand name sweet wines out on the market right now. The 2008 Quarts de Chaume was eye-opening.
