    Rich fruit of honeyed stone fruit, quince, and a little wooly. A bit of mandarin zest and a highlight of white flower add lift to the aromas in the glass. On the palate, this wine is full and rich, but finishes with a lift and lots of phenolic texture.

    Product information

    The South-West orientation of the vines in the Coteaux du Layon, combined with the natural morning mists that come off the Layon leads to a natural onset of botrytis. Papin harvests continually over two months, taking only the grapes that are at their peak of botrytisation on each of several passes that he makes for each row of vines. He then naturally ferments as slowly as possible, without the addition of sugar, in order to keep as much purity of expression as he can. This gives wines that have a great balance of sweetness and acidity without any of the bad Chenin odours that can be seen in other less carefully cared for wines.

    Based in sleepy Beaulieu-sur-Layon, the Papin family possess 54
ha of vines spread across the Anjou-Villages, Côteaux du Layon 
and Savennières appellations. They are one of the best-established quality producers in the region. Pierre Papin bought the then 9-hectare property in 1959. In 1974, his son Claude started to be involved and greatly expanded the domaine. In 1992, they took over the Clos de Coulaine in Savennières. The reputation of Pierre-Bise has been greatly enhanced by Claude and Joëlle Papin. In 1997, son Christophe joined the domaine followed by René in 2001. They progressively took over the running of the domaine with Claude increasingly disengaging and moving to retirement. In 2016, however, Christophe left the domaine leaving René in charge. The wines are well crafted and offer great value for money.
