The Cady family owns 2.5 hectares in the Varennes vineyard, where the vines were planted in 1976. Here, a high proportion of Chenin grapes (90%) were affected by the desirable Noble Rot, giving a wine that is full and creamily-textured. Pale gold colour, aromas are gorgeously perfumed and enticing, recalling confit apricots, peach tart and honeyed citrus peel. Palate is full, deeply concentrated and beautifully mouth-coating, lifted by classic, Coteaux du Layon freshness of acidity.
