Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

The 2005 Coteaux du Layon Clos de Sainte Catherine both smells and tastes more obviously rich than its 2004 counterpart, with prominent characteristics of peaches in syrup, candied pineapple and marzipan. Lush and enveloping, it finishes with a lot of, as yet, superficial, fruit-and-syrup sweetness, but certainly also with an impressive nutty, floral and honeyed character. This will always be more static in personality than the riveting 2004, but 6-8 years (or more) should bring clarity and further complexity, and in the meantime it will make an interesting match with many desserts because their sweetness will not overwhelm it.
