The Winery

Domaine des Baumard

Regarded as one of the top producers from the Loire Valley, Domaine des Baumard has cultivated vines since 1634. In 1955, Jean Baumard became the first winemaker in Anjou to produce wine from both banks of the Loire River. Domaine des Baumard owns 40 hectares of organically farmed vineyards for production of handcrafted Crémant de Loire wines. Domaine des Baumard’s portfolio is extensive, expanding across whites to reds to everything in between. Benchmark Wine Group is thrilled to be your trusted source to offer you these exclusive bottles.

Tasting Notes

WA96
This wine was among those served at a tasting I attended at the Domaine des Baumards in June, 1997 which covered all the wines Jean Baumard has crafted over his career as well as some older ones (back to 1906!). This event is one of the most memorable of my life. I was amazed by the ageworthiness and extremely high quality of Baumard`s wines, both in the sweet and dry offerings. But more poignantly, I was stunned that Jean Baumard would invite people from around the world to come taste, criticize, enjoy and judge every wine he had ever crafted. To have his life`s work dissected in his presence, vintage by vintage, is a testimony to Baumard`s courage, honesty and pride. How many of us would want to have all our work judged in such a manner? Baumard, ever modest, was his own biggest critic. Space constraints prevent me from including notes on the wines so I have only listed the best ones.
