Plump and very friendly with sweetened butter Cavaillon melon creamed peach and marzipan notes that all weave together and stay fresh thanks to nice buried acidity on the finish. Really stretches out in the glass. Drink now through 2013. 600 cases made. -JM

The 2007 Savennieres Trie Speciale - representing a small cuvee from botrytis-affected or otherwise over-ripe fruit such as Baumard renders when the vintage strikes him as meriting it - smells distinctly and hauntingly of white truffle narcissus faded lily quince winter pear and brown spices. Opulently rich it preserves a cleansing even downright refreshing acidity with walnut oil piquancy subtly peat-like smokiness and wet stone adding further complexity to a persistent carpet of flowers and flow of fruits. There is some residual sugar here over and beyond the level of Baumard's two other cuvees but low-level and well-integrated enough for the wine to taste virtually dry; and the over-14% alcohol simply helps engender unctuousness without generating more than a hint of heat. What it lacks vis-a-vis the corresponding Clos du Papillon is that wine's sense of clarity and lift. I would expect this to be worth following for at least the better part of a decade although there is always the risk that its alcohol will catch up with it. --- David Schildknecht
