Domaine des Baumard, Anjou-Saumur

Domaine des Baumard is one of the Loire’s most lauded producers.

Domaine des Baumard owns fantastic sites in Quarts de Chaume as well as the remarkable Clos du Papillon in Savennières and have crafted some of the best wines from France.

Florent Baumard joined the family business in 1987 and has retained the desire to respect the vineyard and make wines that are a true, sympathetic reflection of the remarkable soils in which they are grown. While much of the property remains true to the past, Baumard was among the first to embrace the move towards screwcaps and now bottles the majority of is wines with these closures to retain the purity of the harvested fruit. These are truly world class wines.

Florent Baumard is certainly not afraid to make a statement, with his wines as much as his opinions on the INAO (Institut National de l'Origine et de la Qualité). His Savennières from the famous vineyards of Clos St Yves and Clos du Papillon are rich yet with a balance and elegance that are unrivalled. His top Cuvée of 'Trie Speciale' is only made in very exceptional vintages.

Baumard also produces  impressive sweet wines. His Côteaux du Layon offers incredible value while his Quarts de Chaume is the kind of nectar that leaves a lasting memory.
