”The harvest and vinification of the Coteaux du Layon fruit follows closely the same philosophies with picking in tries, only here the aim is clearly to obtain fruit more marked by botrytis. The fruit is channelled into at least three cuvées, on occasion complemented by some purchased fruit from a grower in St Lambert du Lattay. This purchased fruit does not contribute to the more elevated cuvées but only to the very serviceable Carte d’Or, an entry-level wine with a lighter, elegant style with not a prodigious level of residual sugar.” thewinedoctor.com
“The residual sugar here is 90 g/l; the maximum for this cuvée tends to be about 100 g/l, otherwise Florent feels it can lack freshness. Sweet pear flesh with a matchsticky overlay on the nose. It has a little honeyed apricot, but on the whole the style is light and open. The palate shows a very appealing concentration, with white peach, white pear flesh, a delightfully match-sticky freshness and also a beautifully bright acidity. For an entry-level cuvée this has very nice fruit and tension, but also a delicious minerally frame for it all. Very good indeed.” thewinedoctor.com
