The Cady family owns 2.5 hectares in the Varennes vineyard, which lies on the hillside opposite the domaine, just above the River Layon. Soils combine schist and quartz, the Chenin Blanc vines having been planted in 1976. Bright lemon-gold, aromas are taut and lemony, with notes of ripe mango. Palate is full bodied, having remarkable raciness which lifts natural sweetness and deep concentration. This is a very fresh style, having classic Coteaux du Layon lilt and drive to finish.
