Coteaux du Layon AOC 2018
The development of Botrytis cinerea as noble rot is favoured by alternating dry and wet periods. The damp nights, dew and morning mists of the Layon valley will stimulate the fungus, while the autumn sun of the afternoon will restrict its growth. So the specific conditions are met to develop a great sweet wine.
