Coteaux du Layon 2007

The chenin blanc late harvest of 2007 was saved by a beautiful Indian summer and its wines – like this lighter-style Coteaux-du-Layon from Château de la Viaudière – are a delight: clean, with a delicious balance of sweetness and acidity. It’s raining today but the forecast is more promising from the end of the week – fingers crossed.

This ’07 is pale gold in the glass. Its honeyed aromas and a hint of dried apricot precede the smooth but fresh palate. Sweet lychee syrup leaves you with a tasty plum skin finish.IMG_0056
