1999 Domaine Baumard Clos St. Yves, Savennieres, Loire Valley, France

10 years younger, and so much brighter in its fruit profile (compared to this)! The delicate floral and honey characteristics of Chenin Blanc displayed beautifully on this one with a tinge of developing secondary aromas. Without any oak influence whatsoever, the wine put on a lot more weight in terms of flavours after a few hours of aeration. Still has a life ahead of it, and a keeper pour moi.
