    Seems very rich at first, with blood orange, persimmon and ginger notes, but then the fine minerality takes over, carrying it to a long elegant finish thanks to its rapierlike acidity. Each sip makes you want another. 250 cases made.

Philippe Delesvaux's domaine covers 35 acres, with prestigious holdings of Chenin Blanc in the Coteaux du Layon appellation. Delesvaux is meticulous in his commitment to quality natural winemaking: the winery is certified biodynamic, all harvesting and sorting is done by hand, and every bottle and cork is tested. The Selection des Grains Noble (SGN) offerings are amongst the best of the appellation and have thrust Delesvaux into the limelight of the Loire elite.

The Loire River is the longest river in France and the vineyards that lie along its banks comprise the Loire Valley wine region. France's third largest wine region is home to a collection of grapes, soils, and styles with not much in common aside from a cool climate provided by the northerly latitude. The Loire is best known for its classic expressions of both dry and sweet white wines as well as dry, relatively light-bodied reds.
