The Cady family owns 2.5 hectares in the Varennes vineyard, which lies on the hillside opposite the Domaine, above the River Layon. Soils combine schist and quartz, the vines having been planted in 1976. This riverside location is perfect for late harvest, sweet Chenin Blanc. Bright lemon-gold, aromas are enticing, fruity and complex, recalling ripe pear, honeyed citrus peel and fresh mango. Palate is medium bodied, deeply concentrated and beautifully mouth-coating, lifted by classic, Coteaux du Layon freshness of acidity. The finish is sweet, long and clean.
