“Florent Baumard produces outstanding wines, expressing all the potential of the Chenin Blanc.”
The large variety of soils in the Loire Valley is characterised by diverse natural environments. This region can be sub-divided in four climates, from western coastal regions to inlands - Pays Nantais / Anjou-Saumur / Touraine / Central Vineyards. In Anjou-Saumur, the soils are divided in two different types: the dark schist soils on the southeast edge of the Massif Armoricain and the white limestone chalk soils.
A Passionate Lineage
Domaine des Baumard is a family estate located in Rochefort-Sur-Loire, in the heart of the Loire Valley. This family business is regarded as one of the top wine producers from the region. The domaine is known for producing some of the best examples of Chenin Blanc (AOC Savennières) from organically grown grapes. The domain is also famous for its production of wines from both banks of the Loire river. Florent Baumard keeps yields at a very low level, and the grapes are always hand-harvested and directly pressed to preserve freshness and aroma.
