This Prestige Coteaux du Layon comes from selected vineyard sites within the six
named Coteaux du Layon Villages communes - largely from Beaulieu-sur-Layon.
The old Chenin Blanc vines grow on volcanic rocky soils which allow for long
ripening and a dramatic complexity of flavour in the grapes. Late harvested
with a mixture of vine drying and noble rot to concentrate the sugars, acids and
flavours make these the perfect grapes from which to make dessert wines. The
vineyards are harvested by hand in successive ‘tries’ - to pick only optimum
bunches and grapes. The grapes are then gently pressed and undergo a long, cool
fermentation to preserve the aromas and maturation in old oak. This wine will
age further in bottle for decades to come.
