Tasting Notes                         

88+   2005  Baumard  Savennières    9/26/10 $18

Color: Bright silver yellow. (3.0) Bouquet: Minerals, floor wax and musk complement pear fruit. (3.0) Body: Excellent minerals and acidity with very good fruit. Solid middleweight. (3.0) Flavor: Parallels bouquet with some anise thrown in. (3.0) Finish: Shows very good length, just a touch of bitterness here. (2.5)
Overall: Not quite as attractive as the '04 at this point, but this should smooth and get more interesting with time (2-4 years). Gets better with air, so decant an hour or so for now drinking. Excellent food wine to go with any kind of seafood. (14.5)
