The powerful and expressive nose shows aromas of white flowers, peach and honey. On the palate the wine is round and sweet, but not cloying, with a lively acidity. The total effect is fresh and elegant with good length and lots of charm.
The grapes at Coyeux are planted in a 120 acre vineyard on the steep rocky slopes of the Dentelles de Montmirail at an elevation of 260 m. The vineyard has the very thin topsoil characteristic of the region. The vines have an average age of 30 years, and there are two types of Muscat planted at Coyeux – grains blancs and grains noirs. The latter, being darker, have more aroma and flavor. In the words of the owner, the dark berries give body and the lighter ones give elegance.
