2011 COTEAUX DU LAYON, 1er Cru Chaume, Domaine Petit Métris. Loire

Bin:  915

Alcohol percentage:  12.5%

Area:

Coteaux du Layon is an appellation for delicate, fresh sweet wines made from Chenin Blanc, in the Anjou section of the Loire Valley (the Layon river is a tributary of the Loire). Chaume is a sub-region within CdL, which in 2003 became its own appellation (although my feeling is that dropping the CdL from the label was probably a mistake – only real wine enthusiasts will have heard of Chaume).

Producer:

From the website of their UK agent:
“Domaine du Petit Métris is a sixth-generation winery in Saint-Aubin-de-Luigné near Angers. The domaine’s oldest vineyard dates back to 1905 although the business has been producing wine since 1742 and acquired its first plot of land in 1830. Today, the domaine produces wines from 30 hectares of vineyards across several appellations including Crémant de Loire, rosés and reds from Anjou and Anjou Villages, through to haute de gamme appellations Savennières, Coteaux du Layon and Quarts de Chaume. The vineyards comprise mainly Chenin Blanc, the remainder being Cabernet Franc, Grolleau, Gamay and Chardonnay. Pascal and Hervé Renou are the current generation of owners.”

Old Bridge rating:

Botrytis-affected Chenin Blanc producing a wine of lusciousness but also freshness. Exceptional value
