The Quarts de Chaume appellation holds the only official Grand Cru in the Loire Valley, recognised as such in 2011. Sweet wines, often enriched by the development of botrytised grapes from this appellation are always long-lived and in a good vintage, are seen as almost immortal! This beautiful example is produced in Rochefort sur Loire, in the centre of the Loire Valley region by Domaine des Baumard. It is full of life with floral, citrus and honey scents and mango and ginger on the palate. The wine has a creamy texture that is rich and powerful but has amazing elegance and acidity too.
