Belargus 2018 Coteaux de Layon "Layon", Loire Valley, France
"The 2018 Coteaux du Layon shows a radiant orange color and brilliant, absolutely beautiful and elegant nose of perfectly ripe and stewed apricots intertwined with fresh, spicy-mineral and herbal notes as well as wax notes. Smooth and delicate on the palate, his is seamless, perfectly balanced moelleux and fine crystalline acidity and fully ripe and sweet, highly elegant and refined fruit. The finish is sensationally long and stimulating. This is a great Layon to have on its own, with cheese or with an apricot tart." --Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate.
