Domaine des Baumard (Domaine de Bomar) is located in the heart of the Loire Valley, 20 km from the capital of Anjou, near the village of Rochefort sur Loire, overlooking the lovely scenery. The streets of the old abbey lead to the manor, built in the mid 17th century (1634). The estate and vineyards were transferred to the family from generation to generation, but for many years to combat phylloxera, were not given the opportunity to put to actively develop. It was not until 1955, before the arrival of Jean Bomar, who created the image of the winery as we see it today. Bachelor of Science, enologist, who studied in Dijon and Bordeaux, he began to expand through acquisitions vineyards surrounding the prestigious titles of Anjou. In 1957, he bought more than 5 hectares of land, and in 1968 joined their lands another 15 hectares. He became the first winemaker in Anjou, whose possessions were on both sides of the river Loire.
Bomar son Jean - Florent continued his father's work, taking the baton from him in 1990, when he became the owner of 40 hectares of land. Back in 1987, after studying abroad Florent returned to France to work with his father. Differing philosophical approach to life, refinement, precision and excellent technical education, he was able to learn how to create diverse, interesting wines, as efficiently as possible by taking advantage of the terroir.
Today, Domaine des Baumard (Domaine de Bomar) is all the same old manor house, the gate of which are extensive cellars, tasting room and partially preserved frescoes of the 18th century. If we talk about tradition and technology, it should be noted way of planting vines used domain for the past 30 years: a distance of 3 meters between rows of vines, 0.8 m - between neighboring vines, plowed soil between rows, sown with grass - the best option Use of this land. Crop harvested by hand in order to minimize possible damage. In the cellars of the berries are processed under gentle pressure; fermentation generally carried out at a controlled temperature, sometimes with steel tanks. Although, in most cases, with vinification, Florent still prefer wood. When it comes to the question of the malolactic fermentation, Florent always answers contradictory - it does not encourage it, but that does not mean that we should completely abandon it, because Sometimes this process is necessary.
