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

Loire Valley

In early February I undertook our annual visit to the wine fair in Angers, escaping the snow which engulfed much of the UK during that week.

This is the yearly opportunity for the vast majority of vignerons in the Loire valley to show off their latest offerings to the rest of the world. The early season’s weather in 2008 was not kind, with variously frost, hail and torrential...

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.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
