Winedoctor

    (Domaine des Baumard Quarts de Chaume) Not the most impressive hue in the glass, the wine showing a gentle, shimmering, golden hue. Nevertheless, aromatically this is very enticing, mainly because of the trademark quartzy minerality which is present here, although in perhaps a lower level than can be found in some vintages, and this is compensated for by an evolved caramelly-biscuity richness which rather calls to mind the sweetness of the 2001. On the palate this all shines through very convincingly, the immediate and gentle sweetness nicely framed by the acidity and then the grip of the wine, the framework taking on a very firm, sharp, knapped-flint edge. There is a soft, mellifluous, rich, sweet and almost oily substance to the wine, but the structural elements balance this out with ease, so on the palate the wine seems, despite the sweet fruit-pastille intensity, quite lively and vivacious. In the finish it shows good length, and those caramelly notes return, together with elements of barley sugar, citrus zest and all the sharp, quartzy minerals I seek out. This is still a very young wine, but it is full of potential.
