Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 94 points

Revealing aromas of sweet white flowers, quince, and minerals, the Coteaux du Layon Clos de Ste. Catherine is a thick, unctuous, amazingly sweet and creamy full-bodied wine. Layers of almond extract, fresh red currants and sweetened herbal tea are found in its lively and tightly wound personality. Superbly balanced and admirably long, this harmonious wine has the ability to age for over 20 years in an adequate cellar. Drink it between 1999-2025.
