Of the wines created by the Touchais family on their 145 ha of vineyards, the sweet Coteaux du Layon is perhaps the most iconic. Never one to follow trends, M.Touchais discovered as a happy accident after the devastation of WWII that his sweet wines just tasted better and decided to always allow them to mature for at least 10 years before release. They are far from ordinary and a testament to the adage, “Good things come to those who wait.” The gorgeous Chenin Blanc in this bottle has a fat nose filled with sweet caramel apples tinged with baking spice. On the palate, one finds golden, slightly dried apple balancing dark toffee and an intriguing earthiness. The butterscotch finish goes on and on… Exploit the versatility of sweet wines and pair with not just tarte tatin or blue veined cheese, but with apricot glazed poultry or sweet/ spicy tagines.
