Both lively and creamy without any excess sweetness, the Coteaux de Saumur wines are ideal for ageing and have a mellow, candied and exotic bouquet. The terroirs marked out in this AOC are well exposed and ventilated hillside locations that are good for stimulating early plant growth and help to encourage the grapes to over-ripen and even become infected with noble rot.
Intense robe, yellow or with glints of green, turning to antique gold with hints of amber. Subtle and aromatic nose with exotic aromas. 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.
