2005 Domaine des Baumard Coteaux du Layon Cuvée Le Paon - France, Loire Valley, Anjou-Saumur, Coteaux du Layon (12/1/2020)
-- cracked and poured --
-- tasted non-blind over 2 to 3 hours --

NOSE: aged Nose: light petrol; intense, sweet honeysuckle; light squash note; medium+ expressiveness.

BODY: rich, dark golden yellow color; full bodied.

TASTE: sweet; relaxed; apricot; hints of roasted celery and hay; pretty good acidity; drinking very well now, and I don't see room for further improvement, for my preferences. This bottle was cellared by me since 2010, when it was purchased from K&L. Drink Now and over the next five years.

50, 5, 12, 17, 8 = (92 pts.)
