SWEET WINES: LIGHT AND LIVELY

Light, lively styles - COTEAUX DU LAYON, Moulin Touchais. Coteaux du Layon, Loire Valley

2001 COTEAUX DU LAYON, Moulin Touchais. Loire Valley

Bin: 910
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: South-west of Saumur, around Martigné-Briand and Tigné, on the very edge of the Coteaux du Layon appellation (for many years a great source of sweet wines at relatively low prices)
Grape Variety: 100% Chenin Blanc, late picked but not too late, matured for a couple of months in vats and then left to age very slowly in bottle
Producer: 150 hectare estate, now run by 8th generation Jean-Marie Touchais. They produce a range of cheaper wines and also sell off much of their harvest. Just the best plots are kept for the famous 'Moulin Touchais'
Press Reviews: "Slightly more high-toned in this vintage, with brighter fruit character here, tinged with lemony overtones. Less open and expressive than the 2000 vintage, although there is a slightly denser and more desiccated character to the fruit which I like. The palate is convincing, with confident firm substance to the fruit and a polished texture, as well as a good core of acidity. Attractive, youthful and stylish, with a good balance." - www.winedoctor.com
