2005 Domaine des Baumard Quarts de Chaume

SKU #1032297 98 points Wine Spectator

 A jaw dropper, with orange blossom, persimmon, fig and quince flavors that remain remarkably bright and light thanks to 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. (JM)  (5/2007)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

 From arguably the finest sweet wine vineyard in the Loire, here is a wine that is deceptively fresh on first taste. Then the huge richness kicks in, balanced with blood oranges, white fig and pear flavors, and a mineral character. Complex, this needs many years to develop; superb. (RV)  (10/2007)

92 points Vinous

 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. (JR)  (5/2010)
