The Loire is renowned for spinning straw into gold when it comes to the "ignored" white grapes of the wine world. This leading property in Anjou (in the village of Rochefort sur Loire) has made its stellar reputation cultivating the precocious Chenin Blanc grape. The dry versions - Savennieres and Savennieres "Clos du Papillon" - are perfect for summer sipping and the fantastic Quarts de Chaumes is a dessert wine that rises above with a racy acidity that provides the perfect foil to its sweet stone fruit and honeyed elements. The wines speak to the thoughtful and insightful precision the owner, Florent Baumard, applies to all of his production.
