Domaine des Forges, Coteaux du Layon St Aubin, 2018

In Stock Now!

Wonderful perfume of oranges steeped in honey - it reminds me of that darkly handsome French man in the old Cointreau ads growling about "oranges ripening under a tropical sun". Sweet attack, showing honey over stone fruit, rich and concentrated, but also cut by a vein of acidity. Considerable marmalade botrytis character in the 2018 vintage. 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.
