Coteaux du Layon Saint-Aubin ‘Les Varennes', Domaine Cady 2021

White Wine from France - Loire
0 star rating 0 Reviews
Sweet Loire chenins are among the greatest dessert whites of the world, characterised by vivid freshness and great keeping potential. Just a tiny quantity made this year from a single plot of older vines planted in 1976 with just two passages through the vineyard to vinify this cuvée with 100% noble rot. More honeyed and complex than Alex's regular Saint-Aubin, with uplifting notes of citrus and mint, but still very young, this wine will benefit from a little more time in bottle.

Domaine Cady

Since 1927, four generations of the Cady family have run this estate, with Alexandre Cady most recently taking over from his father, Philippe.

Situated in the hills of Coteaux du Layon, an appellation by the Layon River in the Loire’s Anjou region, there are 22 hectares under vine. The majority of these are chenin blanc, planted on some of the finest schist, quartz and Varennes stone slopes of Saint-Aubin and Chaume, as well as a chunk of cabernet franc and small amounts of gamay, chardonnay and grolleau.

Grapes are harvested by hand, with the chenin blanc for the Coteaux du Layon undergoing several pickings to select only the ones affected by the right level of noble rot.

In the winery, the grapes are vinified in temperature-controlled glass-lined underground vats for freshness, after which the wine matures on its lees, adding richness and a concentrated creamy texture to the fruity, honeyed character.
