One of the Loire's most lauded producers, Florent Baumard has courted controversy by pursuing his own ideas and challenging the status quo. In a deeply traditional region, his early adoption of screwcaps and different vine trellising systems marked him out as the enfant terrible of Savennières. His mantra now encompasses a belief in the individuality of each vintage, believing it should be made with minimal intervention to allow the wine to reflect its vintage and unique character. His Savennières from the famous vineyards of Clos St Yves and Clos du Papillon are rich, yet with a balance and elegance that are unrivalled. His top cuvée of 'Trie Speciale' is only made in very exceptional vintages when grape quality is optimal. It is a wine full of paradox, honeyed and yet dry, rounded and yet firm. The rich fruit, tremendous weight and concentration ensure that it is a thoroughly memorable experience.
We are incredibly excited to have Florent himself coming to our Turl Street cellar to present seven of his wines. We'll start with the Crémant de Loire, moving on to a mini vertical tasting of three vintages of Clos de Papillon (2007, 2006 and 2004), the 2014 Trie Speciale, and finishing with something sweet - Florent's Coteaux du Layon.
This promises to be a fantastic evening - we'll see you there!
