A wee BloodyPulpit:
- This is a producer I’ve never tried before. I have no idea why I bought this wine, other than CoteauxLayon wines are a pretty safe bet.
I served this w/ the Loisen Crema Panettone that I got from DarrellCorti. Darrell regards this as one of the best Panettone producers in Italy. It was a superb pairing.
