This wine is the result of a win-win situation. AOC Coteaux du Layon Premier Cru Chaume is one of the most famous of the Loire Valley’s Coteaux du Layon appellations.
While the soils never produce vigour, neither do they let the vine suffer too much. It is only through a controlled load and extremely careful picking that the winegrower is able to bring out the potential of this appellation’s mesoclimate.
With this extreme care, we obtain the finesse and complexity that only a beautiful overripe grape can give, in exchange for yields of often less than 15 hl per hectare.
