Wine Spectator, May 2007
Pure with a porcelain like texture supporting mineral lime and quince flavors that run along a rapier of a finish. Shows great precision and clarity. Drink now through 2012. 1500 cases made. –JM

Baumard's 2004 Savennieres Clos du Papillon smells alluringly and pungently of lemon white pepper flowers and herbs with a distinctively appellation-typical note of oyster shell. Bracing and juicy and positively lilting yet densely concentrated on the palate it finishes with amazing intensity of salt chalk and stone as well as infectious citricity. While it will strike some tasters as austere â_" and there is certainly a trace of bitterness â_" it should gain richness over the next 8-12 years.
