Domaine des Baumard

In the heart of the Loire Valley, 20 km from the Angevin capital, the village of Rochefort sur Loire has the charm and sweetness of life, so specific to the region. The street of the old abbey leads to a mansion from the end of the 17th century: the heart of the Domaine des Baumard. Home of this family of wine growers whose first vine plots were identified in 1634. If we owe the current configuration of the vineyard to Jean Baumard, it is Florent, his son, who has been driving these 40 hectares on both sides of the Loire ever since. In Rochefort sur Loire, since 1634, Florent's ancestors cultivated plots of vines that are still owned. When the vineyard was reconstituted after phylloxera, they became nurseries in grafted vine plants. This ancillary activity will last until Jean Baumard arrives in 1955. Degree in science, he was the true founder of the current winery. After training as a winemaker in Dijon and Bordeaux, he began to enlarge the vineyard through acquisitions in the prestigious Anjou appellations. In 1957, he purchased more than 5 hectares in the Quarts de Chaume, then in 1968 he brought together fifteen hectares in Savennières. He became the first winemaker of Anjou to set foot on both sides of the Loire River. In the meantime, he was professor of viticulture and oenology at the Angers Higher School of Agriculture and Viticulture, from 1955 to 1970. He was taken by his colleagues to the presidency of the Anjou Wine Federation. Gradually retiring since 1990, he created a well-attended wine course at the 3rd age university of Angers. In 1984, in Rome, one of the members of the family was beatified, a companion of the martyrs of anger of the French Revolution (1794) and Jean Baumard delivered to Pope John Paul II, with the great master EL Breheret, a small barrel that the winemaker leads to the vineyard to quench your thirst during the hot hours of the day. Florent Baumard returned to the family farm in 1987. After literary secondary studies enriched by two years spent in England and the United States, he obtained the diploma of superior technician in viticulture and oenology. Florent combines terroir expression and technical mastery transmitted by his father. Result: an explosion of aromas and a very homogeneous range.
