Coteaux du Layon 1er Cru Chaume

"Spicy and Opulence"

Tasting note

Ample and intense nose, with hints of honey,exotic and yellow fruit. Ample and full in the mouth, which reveals a fruity odour characteristic of a very persistent aroma.


(10°C) : Goes nicely with foie gras, strong cheeses, and some desserts, especially pears and almonds. Very enjoyable as a cocktail.


From 5 years for several decades for a fine vintages.

Noble and smooth

  • Type of wine : Mellow White, exceptional, due to over ripe grapes, and successive sorting (3-5 times).
  • Grape Variety : 100% Chenin
  • Soil type: The clay and slate hillsides with very shallow soil gives a very low yield. Giving richness to the wine.
  • Wine making : The essential work is carried out in the vineyard, the preparation of vine-stocks (leaf thinning and removal) and during the harvesting further sorting. In the cellar, a light racking takes place after a short pneumatic pressing. The wine ferments slowly in the tanks until the sugar / alcohol balance is achieved.
  • Taste : colour golden yellow to an amber gold.
