David Schildknecht - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"A close to 60-40 blend of Cabernet Franc and Chenin though incorporating a soupcon of Pinot Noir, the Baumard Cremant de Loire Carte Turquoise Lot 811 is blended based on the assumption (going back three generations) that the austerity or strictness of schist-grown Chenin will be complimented by the fruitiness of white-pressed Cabernet Franc that might on its own be rustic. Cassis and blackberry as well as quince, pear, and citrus fruits seem to (given the grapes in question, predictably) be mingled here. Texturally, this has a silken yet subtly gripping texture that would I believe have told me blind that I was in the presence of something quite unfamiliar. It finishes with the addition of nut oil richness and a faint hint of sweetness (even though it harbors only 5 grams of residual sugar, so the sensation must stem largely be from ripe fruit and gentle acids). This will be enjoyable simply on its own - I suspect over the next 6-9 months." (August 2010)
