International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 150

($80) 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.

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 172

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.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

A jaw dropper, with orange blossom, persimmon, fig and quince flavors that remain remarkably bright and light, thanks to the 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. 1,200 cases made.

Explodes on the palate with orange zest, quince and jasmine, with a little sea spray (mineral?) on the finish. The texture and weight is very light - almost airy - but the flavors are intense and focused. Fruit, mineral and acidity all in balance. Very well made. I would suspect even those who claim not to like sweet wines would like this. Screw cap.

WOW.As good as the hype. Rich, apricots, citrus, "white strawberry", unctious,round, integrated and extraordinary long finish. The next day some leftover standing in a glass was still spectacular. Incredibly looking forward to trying over future years as this wine ages but gosh is it great now.
