Loire Tour 2016 Recap

Our first tasting on the Loire reccy for the TDV 2016 at Domaine de la Bergerie in Champ sur Layon. Fantastic tasting with Anne Guégniard.

 

 

On day 2 of the reccy, we had morning tastings in Chinon, starting at Domaine de la Noblaie.

 

 

Our next Chinon tasting was at Bernard Baudry – with his son and Matthieu who is now in charge! Superb wines that we will be looking to import.

 

 

Domaine Huet was our one and only tasting in Vouvray – and it was an absolute belter. A fantastic tour and tasting with Johan Le Calonnec.

We then headed to Sancerre on Day 3 and visited Domaine Henri Bourgeouis in Chavignol. We were looked after by Alban de Gérin – and we even bought a few magnums for the long journey home!

 

The last tasting on the reccy was at Serge Dagueneau & Filles in Pouilly sur Loire. Here we tried some terrific wines, the first being an indiginous grape variety ‘Chasselas’ – that was really excellent.
