DOMAINE DES BAUMARD COTEAUX DU LAYON Clos Ste. Catherine - 2001
Loire white made from Chenin Blanc with 12% alcohol.
Golden color with apricots, petroleum, and citrus on the nose. Pear and apple with hints of pineapple, honey, citrus, and tortilla chips. Sweet and lush with a long endless finish.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Retails for around $30 for a 750 ML so it is not inexpensive. However, comparable quality from a Sauternes or Ice Wine would cost this much or more in 375ML size. Very enjoyable and great with cheeses as well a desserts or on its own at the end of a meal.
