The appellation areas are located on a small proportion of a single commune on the right bank of the Layon: Rochefort-sur-Loire. The wines characteristics are: Deep yellow or green-tinted robe, developing towards antique gold with hints of amber. Intense, complex nose, floral aromas, white fruits, candied citrus fruits and exotic fruits in the early years, developing after 5 to 10 years towards notes of precious woods, dried or candied fruits, honey and grilled almonds, generally marked by strong minerality. Later on, they also offer notes of waxy gentian.
Powerful and opulent on the palate with a strong thick feeling, giving these syrupy wines an ideal balance between mellow sweetness and liveliness.
