Château de la Roulerie Coteaux du Layon Chaume 2005

Member Review by Arwan:

This 100% cepage of Chenin blanc vinified semi-sweet presents a gold-yellow colour, very intense. The bouquet gradually reveals its measure, with at first flowery blossom and vagetal aromas, then, after aeration, white fruits (peaches, pears, quinces) and grapefruit appears to settle and last. A slight hint of woody vanilla, in the end, reinforces its complex character. Richness, smoothness and persistence, together create a very typical wine of the Loire Valley. Drinking suggestions: Serve between 10-12° Celsius, decanted if possible in order to obtain the best of its potential. It accompanies marvellously Foies gras, fillets of duck, hot fruit tarts and creams. It can be laid for aging for at least 5 years, too.
