Baumard's 1997 Quarts de Chaume has been tasted five times over a six month period and it is a remarkably consistent wine. With extended aeration it appears to gain in focus and freshness, a trait that is surprising in the generally heavy and super-ripe 1997 vintage. Caramelized minerals and honeyed aromas are exuded by this dense, oily, jammy wine. On the palate, marzipan, candied grapefruit, and tropical fruits can de detected within its viscous, yet fresh, core. This massive offering will require some cellaring before reaching its peak.
Gorgeous, clear amber color with powerful aromas of papaya, mango and quince paste that lead to a lush palate loaded with fruit, followed by green almond, green tea, orange blossom and mineral notes. It's long and lush, but is hard pressed to keep up with the '95/'96 duo.--Baumard non-blind vertical. Drink now through 2025.
