Wine Description:
Domaine Philippe Delesvaux Passerillé Coteaux du Layon Saint-Aubin is a sweet white wine produced by the renowned winemaker Philippe Delesvaux in the Coteaux du Layon appellation of the Loire Valley. The vineyards are located on steep slopes with schist and volcanic soils, which impart unique mineral flavors to the wine. The grapes are harvested late, allowing them to develop a natural sweetness through the process of passerillage. The wine is then aged in oak barrels, adding complexity and depth to the final product. The result is a rich and luscious wine with notes of honey, apricot, and citrus, balanced by a refreshing acidity. It is a perfect pairing for desserts or as an aperitif.
