... this powerful, viscous (yet delineated!), superbly balanced wine offers a full-bodied, layered personality jam-packed with red cherries, raspberries, candied apricots, pineapple, quince, liquid minerals and flowers. Its unbelievably long finish reveals traces of stones, blueberries, herbal tea and cardamon. This wine brings together the elegance and refinement of the wines from the top traditional Coteaux du Layon producers and the concentration, sugar and power of the "sugar hunters." Bravo!
