The Coteaux Du Layon region of the Loire is dedicated to the exclusive production of sweet white wines from 100% Chenin Blanc. As a huge fan of off-dry and sweeter styles of Riesling, I found a new crush in Coteaux Du Layon. This is rich and has a nice mouth feel from the sweetness of the residual sugar, but still brings a zippy, tingly acidity to the party. There's notes of crushed pineapple, dried peaches and orange blossoms. You could go in several directions with pairings here; pair this with something like a roasted pear and blue cheese salad or drink this with anything you'd typically pair with an off-dry or Spätlese Riesling, like spicy Indian or Thai food. You could go classic and have it with a warm plum cake, or get weird with it and have this with something like Arancini di Riso stuffed with Gorgonzola. It's so tasty, I'd drink this with just about anything though.

I was totally blown away by this wine when we tasted it recently at a staff tasting event. I was utterly shocked when I found out the price. Sweet, but not too sweet, bright and vivid with gorgeous acidity, it's a stunning wine that is totally unique. Yes, this may be a dessert wine, but for those seeking more adventurous pairings, this wine would absolutely kill with spicy Indian or Thai cuisine. This chenin blanc is such an unbelievable value--I totally recommend it.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chenin Blanc

- Also called Pineau de la Loire and Pineau d'Anjou. Chenin Blanc is an expressive white French varietal that makes beautiful dry, sweet and sparkling wines. Traditionally grown in the Loire Valley, the wines made from this varietal are typically labeled geographically. Vouvray Chenins are traditionally medium-sweet; Savennières Chenins are typically bright and crisp; Coteaux du Layon Chenins like Bonezeaux and Quarts de Chaume are among the world's most sought-after sweet wines, and the sparkling Chenins of Saumur are perfumed and delicious. What all of these iterations of the grape have in common is their ability to age, a gift bestowed upon them because of the grape's naturally high-acidity.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Loire

- Of all of the French wine producing regions, the Loire might produces the greatest variety of wines. They range from still to sparkling, very dry and acidic to hearty sweet, and clear in color to a deep purple. The diversity of wine produced in this region is due in part to its dynamic climate, which ranges from Continental to Mediterranean. This region is best known for Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc and Cabernet Franc. The most famous areas in the Loire Valley may be Sancerre and Vouvray.
