Domaine des Forges, Coteaux du Layon Saint Aubin Loire 2021


Domaine de Forges, a family-run winery for five generations, excels in Chenin Blanc from their 50 hectares of sustainably farmed vines in the Loire Valley. The 2021 vintage faced challenges with spring frost but ultimately yielded fruit with exceptional concentration. The vineyards, on heat-retaining schist soils, are managed to ensure sunlight exposure and ripening, with manual green harvesting and summer thinning.

Winemaking involves indigenous yeast fermentation in temperature-controlled tanks, halted by crossflow filtration to produce a sweet wine with lower sulphur levels. The wine is tank-aged to maintain fruit purity.

Tasting notes reveal an exquisite sweet wine, aromatic with exotic fruits and dried apricot, balanced by fresh acidity and mineral complexity, leading to a long, persistent finish. This 100% Chenin Blanc wine showcases Domaine de Forges’ commitment to quality and the unique terroir of the Loire Valley.
