2006 Domaine des Baumard Clos de Saint Yves, AC Savennières
The sort of estate level bottling for this producer, I didn't want to let my general apathy about chenin blanc to prevent me from tasting a Savennières - we see so little of this region in Ontario that any poor buying decisions most likely won't be repeated.
Not a bad wine again - but is it a crime for being boring? At these prices, I think there's a strong case that it is. Maybe I'm not giving these wines a fair chance, maybe they show better with more bottle age, whatever . . . or maybe they're just boring wines that only wine hipsters enjoy (because they're just sooo much cooler than anyone else).
