Clos de Sainte-Catherine is at the summit of the sweet wines of Coteaux du Layon. This comes from a great year for sweet wines, and that shows in the impressive balance between intense sweetness and acidity. It's smooth and crisp at the same time, a great combination. Age for 10 years and more. Screwcap.
