2013 Coteaux du Layon, Domaine des Forges

A stunning effort from Stéphane in another vintage where crop is limited. Carefully selected to include only ripe, concentrated grapes, this was a stand out winner from Loire this year for wines of this style and price. Fresh and aromatic with honey and pear, flowers and quince; the palate is clean and elegant with a freshness that balances out the enjoyable sweetness.
