The Baumard property near Rochefort sur Loire in Anjou has been in the family since 1634, but it was Florent’s father, Jean, who established its wine reputation in the mid-1950s. For 60 years their wines from the surrounding appellations of Savennières, Coteaux du Layon and Quarts de Chaume have been widely acknowledged as some of the greatest wines, not only of the Loire, but of the world.
Baumard Crémant de Loire Rosé
80% Cabernet Franc, 20% Chenin Blanc
“Very pale, bright pink with a steady bead. Shy aromas of strawberry, blood orange, rose and spices, plus a hint of honeysuckle. Very fresh and expansive on the palate, offering pure red fruit and sweet citrus flavors and subtle minerality. The precise, spicy finish leaves dusty mineral and strawberry notes behind.”‘ – Steve Tanzer

About Domaine de Baumard
Verrier Et Fils Cuvee Tradition Brut
$32.99 – $119.99
75% Meunier, 20% Chardonnay, 5% Pinot Noir Aged in Cellar 4 Years before Release The nose opens with a welcoming intensity and delicious tones of almonds and cherries that develops into darker berries and pastries. The palate is effervescent yet robust. Well-structured tannins flesh out the perfectly balanced acidity, with notes of grapefruit and apple, and ending with a lingering finish that will have you reaching for another glass.
Serge Mathieu Brut Select
80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir. The maison’s grand cuvée. During the harvest, the finest grapes from the top vineyard sites are selected and only the first press juice is used. It is generous and harmonious, with fine, delicate citrus notes on the palate.
Champalou Vouvray Brut
100% Chenin Blanc. A remarkable complexity with a texture that shows both a creamy richness and marked minerality. A fantastic alternative to Champagne, it boasts a floral nose with notes of peaches and melon. The honeyed palate is round with excellent acidity and a deliciously long finish.
Serge Mathieu Brut Millesime 2009
It has structure, power and length, and bears the mark of its Pinot Noir. It clearly shows all the work that has been carried out in the vineyards since only very ripe and small grapes can produce such density and structure in a Champagne. 8.6 grams dosage. Entirely made from Pinot Noir… clear, fresh and straight fruit of yellow skinned apples and Williams pears along with citrus flavors and some stony notes on the nose. This is remarkably elegant and delicate with a mineral backbone and an excellent grippy finish.
Serge Mathieu Brut Rose
90% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay Full-bodied and fresh. Clear-cut and savoury aromas of strawberries and pomegranates. Dark berries nad toast on the palate. Firm mousse and tiny bubbles, it’s rich on the palate with a light and delightful red fruit taste.
Fleury Rosé Brut
Jean-Pierre Fleury is something of a master craftsman when it comes to making Pinot Noir dominated Champagne. Again the style here owes as much to Burgundy as it does to the grand marques of Champagne. 100% Pinot Noir made by maceration with all of the skins in contact with all of the juice. Most rosés made in this style are very big, but this one is the exception; it is very elegant. In the glass it has a wonderful, fresh Pinot Noir nose of strawberry fruit and forest air intrigue. Richly textured palate with impressive depth and terroir.
Robert Fleury 30 ans Extra Brut
34% Pinot Blanc, 33% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay Bold and intense on the nose where ripe fruits with oak and peach flavors are elegantly displayed. This is a full-bodied, pure and elegant, finesse-full and tension-filled Champagne. A fine mousse with an outstanding finish.
Cave de Lugny Cremant de Bourgogne Millesimee 2016
50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir. This exceptionally priced Burgundian sparkler offers a terrific opportunity to try a relatively rare commodity in our market. This Gold Medal-winning bubbly (Concours des Vins Burgondia) has suggestions of toasted bread and nuts on both the nose and palate, with tangy citrus and a hint of tea. Well-balanced, crisp and refreshing.
