Déjà renommée et exporté dans le nord de l'Europe au XIVème siècle, ce vin a la même méthode de fabrication que le sauternes (avec lequel on le confond souvent), étant toutefois plus puissant et gras que ce dernier. More info
What the experts say...
"Pale gamboge/coppery colour. Light and smoky nose. Round and toasty with some quince character. Lovely wine for today but probably not the extract for a very long life. Pungent." Jancis Robinson (Tasted in 2015)
Deemed to be the very best grand cru of the Côteaux du Layon Chaume, the Quarts-de-Chaume vineyard is located in the municipality of Rochefort sur Loire on a clay-gravel hillside slope that enjoys south-facing exposure overlooking the river Layon. Its name dates back to the Middle Ages, when a quarter of the village of Chaume's harvest from the vineyard worked by monks, had to be handed over to the local lord who selected the very best casks. The vineyard produces a light fortified white wine made from harvests that are sorted in successive sessions. Combining finesse and power, the Quarts-de-Chaume develops subtle aromas of apricot, peach and honey due to the complexity of its soil. Boasting incredible length on the palate, this wine is one of the world's ultimate soft white wines. Furthermore, low production makes this a rare wine that is particularly highly sought after by connoisseurs.
