(Domaine des Baumard Savennières Clos du Papillon) Rich, deep, golden colour. An amazingly expressive nose, with minerals and chalk, honey botrytis, lemon and orange, and powdered rocks. Great richness is the impression, borne out on the palate, but with an almost paradoxical bone dry structure. Pervasive, flamboyant, fresh, with a fine, honeyed texture backed up by rocky minerality and great acidity, this is superb. Showing much better than my last tasting, and my estimated drinking window from my last bottle may be a little conservative - this could go one for years and years. Excellent.
(Domaine des Baumard Savennières Clos du Papillon) Unlike the preceding wines this has a glorious deep-gold hue reflecting this wines age. A complex nose, yielding aromas of quince, honey and nectar. The palate is rich but dry which seems almost paradoxical. Structured and grippy. Showing well for a weak vintage.
