Domaine de Baumard ‘Clos du Papillon’ Savennières 2000

Savennières, Loire, France. 13%

Gorgeous aromas of aged Chenin Blanc with just a touch of honey. A perfectly dry wine (something which doesn’t quite match the aromas), lovely, apart from a slightly hard green tinge on the finish this is wonderful.

Drink this not too cold, when cold the nose is still lovely but the palate loses character. Will benefit from a few more years, and last a good while longer.
