Domaine de la Bergerie Coteaux du Layon Fragrance 1997
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Coteaux du Layon|
|Brand||Domaine de la Bergerie|
The Coteaux du Layon Cuvee Fragrance is in the style made famous as well as controversial by this region's "sugar hunters". It is massively dense, jellied, syrupy, and viscous, however, it appears to be well balanced. It displays awesome aromas of candied blood oranges, raspberries, and honeysuckle blossoms. The wine coats the palate with oily quince, oranges, and red fruits. This highly concentrated and powerful wine will require contemplative sipping, not drinking. Projected maturity: now-2012.
