    (Domaine des Baumard Quarts de Chaume) This has a wonderful colour in the glass, showing a lightly burnished yellow-gold hue, but it still seems very bright and fresh. The nose is certainly stunning; it kicks off with aromas of quince, rich and heady and faintly apricotty, so - regardless of what level of cryo-extraction or cryo-selection has been utilised here - this does seem to be showing some traits which I would usually associate with botrytis. This rich and enticing character persists as the wine warms a little in the glass, but is soon joined by the scents of beautifully fresh mango, with suggestions of tangerine zest keeping it fresh, but also deeper notes of praline and almond paste providing depth, richness and opulence. The palate is similarly divine; it is immediately expansive, rich and coating, but this rapid impact is nicely balanced with vibrant citrus and tropical fruit acidity, and then there comes the sudden influx of cream, praline and caramel to match the aromas found on the nose. Despite this the wine remains fresh and bright throughout, grippy and long in the finish. It's an excellent wine.

    (Domaine des Baumard Quarts de Chaume) A very pure hue here, yellow gold, nothing like the very deep colour of the Bellerive tasted alongside. The nose is haunting in its tropical purity, the first notes redolent of mango and passion fruit. Thereafter the complexity comes, in the shape of almonds especially, with such a sweet, liquid intensity it makes me think of marzipan more than the nut itself. The palate is pure, honeyed, with little notes of praline but more of the sweet marzipan elements, cut through by a minerally edge. It has an incredibly mellifluous style, so balanced and pure, rich and complex and yet lifted and bright, dancing across the palate, with a lovely composition that just keeps it so fresh. And it is very long too, of course. A remarkable wine, controversial perhaps, but the end result is something very admirable.
