I discovered Coteaux de Layon many years ago and kept it quiet. Let everybody buy Sauternes and Ice wine. Coteaux du Layon is the best for Foie Gras. The Baudouin really surprised me, in a great way. It was unctuous and honeyed and perfect for the foie gras. The balance was impeccable. Bravo!more reviews

"This is an excellent, mouth-filling yet very stimulating Layon." Robert Parker
Idealist for some, troublemaker for others, Patrick Baudouin leaves no lover of Anjou wines indifferent. An ardent defender of great natural sweet wines in the 1990s, the former bookseller decided with other winegrowers to found the "Syndicat des Antisucreurs" on the principle that wine should only be based on grapes. This is what gives the Coteaux du Layon "1896" all its splendour. On the nose, mineral and refreshing notes make us salivate. On the palate, both powerful and fresh, giving a long, intense and salty finish. A sweet white wine of character, smooth and light, making all the difference in its category.

DOMAINE BAUDOUIN

Maria Juby and Louis Juby, great-grandparents of Patrick Baudouin, are the founders of this estate in 1920. In 1990, after other professional activities, Patrick Baudouin returned to strengthen the estate on the basis of the small and former family cellar. Today there are 14 hectares of vines in production spread over the beautiful soils of "Anjou noir", that of schists, sandstones and volcanic rocks. Since 1997 the tillage has been resumed with the abandonment of chemical weedkillers. In the cellar, since 1994 no wine has been chaptalised, and the doses of sulphur used limited as much as possible. In 2002, the estate began to convert its vines to organic farming. Any new plot rented or purchased is immediately converted, if it is not organic.
