Domaine des Forges, Coteaux du Layon St Aubin, 2019

Wonderful perfume of oranges steeped in honey. Sweet attack, showing honey over stone fruit and a little bit of candied peel. Rich and concentrated, but also fresh and fruity with a refreshing burst of acidity. Would make a delicious... Read More

Domaine des Forges, Coteaux du Layon St Aubin, 2019

Wonderful perfume of oranges steeped in honey. Sweet attack, showing honey over stone fruit and a little bit of candied peel. Rich and concentrated, but also fresh and fruity with a refreshing burst of acidity. Would make a delicious aperitif if chilled and will pair well with an apricot tart or blue cheese. Now-2027

Saint-Aubin-de-Luigné lies between the Loire and Layon rivers. This late picked Chenin Blanc offers absurdly good value for a wine of such richness and weight; and from vines with an average age of forty years too.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
