BELARGUS QUARTS QUARTS DE CHAUME GRAND CRU CHENIN 375ML

One of the world’s finest dessert wines. "Les Quarts" is the original plot which gave its name to the Quarts-de-Chaume appellation. Belargus’s plot covers nearly half of the 7 Ha of the total area, exposed on the Southern slope of the rump. In exceptional vintages only, the domaine perpetuates the traditional noble rot sweet wine from this legendary plot. The magic of the Quarts-de-Chaume terroir (sunny South-facing hillside, exposed to the morning mists of the Layon river and aerated by constant winds) works its magic, resulting in a botrytis of rare concentration. The famous pudding-rock schists laying atop and interspersed in these soils give this cuvée a vertical tension and an elegant freshness. “More gingerbread than Les Rouères, Les Quarts displays right from the first whiff all its power and complexity. Density and energy join forces for a full, unctuous wine with significant ageing potential. Superb.” 375ml. Best cellared for 10-30 years and beyond. Serve at 8-10C. Pairs well with desserts such as Tarte-Tatin pie, lemon meringue pie, or apricot pie. Some in the Loire also enjoy it with blue cheeses.
