    (Domaine des Baumard Savennières Trie de Spéciale) A mid-golden hue here, and a fabulous nose; it kicks off with a blast of minerals, hard at first, then it softens up with notes of golden stone fruit and orange pith, and Mediterranean herbs, a complex melange of sage, thyme and bay. But there is no loss of definition to the edges, the wine keeping a very straight and linear polished-stone edge. The palate has developed a very stylish poise, with the almost exotic flesh suggested by the nose, cut through with notes of minerals and ash. Beautiful presence in the mouth, defined but polished, with a little tender-honey to the texture, but a dry and grippy structure underneath. Elements of straw on the palate. Most impressive of all, a slow unfolding of layer after layer of flavour on the finish, herbs and pithy fruit, spreading out like a peacock's tail, and a great length too. Excellent wine. It looks as though my very first assessment at the domaine was a little mean; my excuse is that young Savennières is difficult to judge! No rush here by the way.

    (Domaine des Baumard Savennières Trie de Spéciale) An appealing golden colour with more than a little depth. Very mineral in character, smoky stone fruit, with nuances of orange and thyme. Rich palate, with the suggestion of botrytis-derived flavours, but bone dry, with plentiful and firm alcohol, and grippy structure, providing for a rather foursquare, masculine mouthfeel and presence. This is clearly in need of bottle age in order to soften and develop, and is bristling with potential. Very good.

    (Domaine des Baumard Savennières Trie Spéciale) Not giving away too much on the nose at present. The palate displays good texture, and superb concentration. Here is a wine that demands time in the cellar.
