Baumard Clos du Papillon Savennieres 2010

$ 37.75

Baumard produces several cuvées of Savennières, the great dry Chenin Blanc, including a domaine bottling (AOC or Clos St. Yves), this single vineyard wine (Clos du Papillon), and an extraordinary select-harvested cuvée, Trie Spéciale, produced only in great vintages.

The Clos du Papillon "shows excellent cut from the start, with pear eau-de-vie and green almond notes guiding the salted butter, brioche, fig and green melon flavors. The mouthwatering acidity is deeply imbedded on the finish." This wine is tasting great now with some bottle age and should last at least 10 more years.

Serve as an accompaniment to crustaceans or fish, grilled or in sauce. It is made to be drunk during a meal.
