The Coteaux du Layon is drawn from Philippe Germain’s estate vineyards in the heart of the Layon Valley at Rochefort-sur-Loire. Unusually for the Loire, the clay and schist-rich soils are cut into an amphitheatre of terraces. The grapes are harvested passerillé style (with little or no botrytis) and are naturally fermented and aged in neutral demi-muid. The fermentation was stopped, leaving around 80g/L residual sugar balanced by the wine’s perky acidity and moderate alcohol. Lovely, pure scents of orange blossom and citrus, honey and a touch of savoury salinity lead to a palate flush with sweet citrus, lime marmalade and buttered toast. Although plush and mouth-filling, everything is in its place, with cleansing acidity and a refreshing floral-inflected finish providing the balance. Made for the dining table, this would work well with a range of foods, from soft cheese to fruit-based desserts.
