2011 Chaume les Onnis, Coteaux du Layon, Domaine des Forges

An intense lemon-gold hue hints at the heady aromas in this lovely cuvée. Elegant candied-orange notes provide a vibrant scent, accompanied by honey, bruised apple, and spiced notes. The palate has that wonderful nervy acidity that can be associated with this excellent domaine and gives a brilliant lift and clean mouthfeel. There is citrus peel and pink grapefruit, with delicious sweetness and a hint of nutty nougat on the finish. Unbelievably good value.
