Domaine des Baumard, Quarts de Chaume 1995

Baumard Chaume 1995

Antique golden color.  Adorned, cherubic nose with a metallic shimmer: glazed tropical and marmalade notes, herbal candy, marzipan, carob.  Indulgent, out-sized fruit with enough citric vim to keep this on point.  The texture of honeyed magma, ornamented and plush.  Plaintain and limestone finish.  A flowing heaviness here: despite its molten size this is kinetic, animated.  So not a trollop .. more a baroque Quarts de Chaume .. but unlikely to rival the great ’89 and ’90.  Now – 2020+.
