WS 98
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, May 2007
A jaw dropper with orange blossom persimmon fig and quince flavors that remain remarkably bright and light thanks to riveting acidity and a superfine minerally finish. Pure and perfectly balanced this refuses to break... A jaw dropper with orange blossom persimmon fig and quince flavors that remain remarkably bright and light thanks to riveting acidity and a superfine minerally finish. Pure and perfectly balanced this refuses to break down in the mouth. The best since the monster 1995. Drink now through 2032. 1200 cases made. –JM

From arguably the finest sweet wine vineyard in the Loire, here is a wine that is deceptively fresh on first taste. Then the huge richness kicks in, balanced with blood oranges, white fig and pear flavors, and a mineral... From arguably the finest sweet wine vineyard in the Loire, here is a wine that is deceptively fresh on first taste. Then the huge richness kicks in, balanced with blood oranges, white fig and pear flavors, and a mineral character. Complex, this needs many years to develop; superb.

Given a hard act to follow in the 2004 Baumard's 2005 Quarts de Chaume displays the most obviously botrytized white raisin and shriveled fruit character of any of their recent wines that I tasted.

Given a hard act to follow in the 2004 Baumard's 2005 Quarts de Chaume displays the most obviously botrytized white raisin and shriveled fruit character of any of their recent wines that I tasted. Over-ripe melon and pear candied grapefruit marzipan and raisin are accented by brown spices and herbal candy notes. Impressively lush and long this should evolve interestingly over up to two decades but will doubtless remain relatively plump and baroque in character.

Vivid gold. An exotically perfumed bouquet displays pear nectar, orange pith, honey and marzipan. Fleshy, palate-coating pit fruit flavors are complemented by anise, truffle and honey, with a stony mineral underpinning... Vivid gold. An exotically perfumed bouquet displays pear nectar, orange pith, honey and marzipan. Fleshy, palate-coating pit fruit flavors are complemented by anise, truffle and honey, with a stony mineral underpinning. The finish is broad, smooth and sweet, leaving exotic mango and candied orange notes behind. Showing very good complexity now but possesses the structure and depth to age for a long time.
