The terroirs marked out by the Anjou Coteaux de la Loire AOC are in well-exposed and ventilated hillside locations that are ideal for harvests of over-ripened grapes and even grapes infected with noble rot.
The wines show an intense robe, yellow or with glints of green, turning to antique gold with hints of amber; Subtle, aromatic and exotic nose. These tender to sweet wines are more supple and airy than those of the Coteaux du Layon (although certain winegrowers do try for maximum concentration). Round on entry with a fairly lively finish.
