Coteaux du Layon Chenin Blanc 1981

Last of the 1981 bottles I bought for my dear wife’s birthday and I believe this was the best. The cork was in incredible condition, looked only a few years old - Ah So made easy work of it. After allowing it to warm a bit - caramel apple, some barnyard funk on the nose, plus an under layer of fresh green apple. Palate is beautifully balanced, no sign of fatigue at all - this #coteauxdulayon #cheninblanc could coast for ages it seems. Caramel and honey notes, fleshy texture, some lemon, piercing acidity cutting through that sweetness, and more fresh green apple underlaying the baked notes. This was a nice counterpoint to the Sauternes we had closer to her actual birthday and a compelling alternative. — 2 months ago

Toichais lasts forever! We celebrated my parents’ 50th anniversary with a 1959 and it was as good as new! Better even!

Love this #1994 #MoulinTouchais #CoteauxDuLayon #CheninBlanc Beautiful Floral & Citrus Nose... Strong acidity balances out all of the other components of this wine... Lightly sweet, great Minerality, lemon, white flowers, bruised Green Apple... Paired beautifully with my Roquefort & Black Truffle Mie Feuille with Market Figs dessert at #GabrielKreuther #Nyc ❤️🍴🍷 👏👏👏 — 6 years ago

Wow!! Golden with great concentration. #botrytis nose with high complexity. A total palate f**k. The appearance of being bone dry with racy acidity, superb tension, and incredible complexity. Long finish. This is a baby at 12 years old. Still tasting amazing after 7 days of being open. #coteauxdulayon #moulintouchais #cheninblanc #loirevalley #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago

Cuvée Intégrale Rochefort Coteaux du Layon Chenin Blanc 1990

Vintage 1994 - Selection de Grains Nobles - I bought this #CoteauxduLayon in 1996 when the kids build sandcastles on a small beach on the banks of the Louet river just beneath the river “La #loire in the commune #Rochefort. After 23 y this wine has a mahony brown colour, a shy smell but terrific balance. Beautiful #cheninblanc to partner a Xmas Tarte Tatin. And also a sweet memory 😃 — 4 years ago

Les Cerisier Coteaux du Layon St Aubin Chenin Blanc 1995

Vintage 1995 - there is Coteaux du Layon that is so lovely it is overwhelming charming to the taster, and there is Coteaux du Layon where you need to fight to discover its qualities. With its 22 years this is an example of the second type. Shy smell, almonds, vanilla, spicy, not complete in balance as there are prominent bitters in taste. Also honey tones after aeration. Drank it with a ricotta cake that had beautiful citrus in it that matched well with the wine. #coteauxdulayon #cheninblanc #loire #aged beautiful golden colour. — 4 years ago
