Coteaux du Layon is an appellation in the Loire Valley in France that produces incredibly sumptuous sweet white wines from the Chenin Blanc grape. The appellation covers 27 communes, six of which can display the village name on the wine label (there is a tighter production limit for these villages at 30 hl/ha rather than the 35 hl/ha permitted elsewhere).
A great example is that produced by Domaine Philippe Delesvaux whose vineyard can be found in the Saint-Aubin-de-Luigne municipality in the Maine-et-Loire département in the Loire Valley.
