2005 Domaine des Baumard "Clos Sainte Catherine" Coteaux du Layon

SKU #1154273 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich and ripe, with glazed fruit, apple tartine and fig paste notes backed by a rich texture and a long, creamy finish, where the lingering fig and green almond notes keep pulling you back. Combines power and precision. Drink now through 2027. Inner quote mark (5/2007)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark ** Cellar Selection ** Clos de Sainte-Catherine is at the summit of the sweet wines of Coteaux du Layon. This comes from a great year for sweet wines, and that shows in the impressive balance between intense sweetness and acidity. It’s smooth and crisp at the same time, a great combination. Age for 10 years and more. Screwcap. Inner quote mark (10/2007)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Coteaux du Layon Clos de Sainte Catherine both smells and tastes more obviously rich than its 2004 counterpart, with prominent characteristics of peaches in syrup, candied pineapple and marzipan. Lush and enveloping, it finishes with a lot of, as yet, superficial, fruit-and-syrup sweetness, but certainly also with an impressive nutty, floral and honeyed character. This will always be more static in personality than the riveting 2004, but 6-8 years (or more) should bring clarity and further complexity, and in the meantime it will make an interesting match with many desserts because their sweetness will not overwhelm it. (DS) Inner quote mark (8/2007)
