 A jaunt to my favourite of estates for a tickle of tasting with guests Andy and Kirsty from London town. Chateau de Chaintres has moved on a little bit since Richard left with an extension to the wine list. The wines remain well presented and there is sufficient selection to satisfy all occasions. Andy and Kirsty were suitably impressed and enjoyed the afternoon jaunt. I hope we have two more disciples to champion the wines of the Loire and in particular Saumur Champigny. Like them if you try hard you can discover the true wines of the Loire and enjoy the experience at the same time.

  If you are passing through the Loire why not pop into the Enfin du Vin in Candes St Martin. Its a jolly good place to have a light lunch of Saucisson and fromage with a wine from a great selection. We plumped for a bin end 2010  Muscadet Serve et Maine from Vincent Caille. In the Loire you have to first and foremost think vintage and 2010 was just that. Structured with deep peach flavours just right with our fine array of cheeses. A lovely day out on the Loire/Vienne rummaging amongst the antiques and bric a brac at Montsoreau. Busy.

  Pottering along quite merrily today. Ducking the showers and mixing it up with the french tasters of wine trying to look intelligent and interested whilst it all goes on around us. No actually a fun visit to our favourite estate with Robert and Clare enjoying a long afternoon amongst the french visitors. Jolly good.

   An evening with guests at our local bistro Le Puy a Vin in the lovely town of Puy Notre Dame. Its a fully organic place so both wine and food are organic. Ian, Daniel, Ruth and Mandy had all been on one of our wine tours so were very adept at choosing the wines. An Anjou blanc from Chateau Bois-Brincon and a Chinon Blanc both chenin grape wines of course. My choice a Cour-Cherverny from Touraine with its own grape variety Romorantin. It has an intense mineral taste not dissimilar to Chardonnay to which it is related.

 A super sunny day for checking out the delights of the wines of the Loire valley with Amanda, Debbie, Ian, Neil, Daniel and Ruth. Such a variety that you would be hard pressed not to find one that you will enjoy. Our guests sampled the delights of Anjou blanc and rouge, two IGP’s sauvignon blanc and chardonnay, two pinks dry and demi-sec, three sparklers and three luscious sweets. Wow.

Popping along to Simon’s very informative wine talk on the wines of the Loire with some interesting slants on the french way of doing things. Think Place. David, Claire, John, Christine, Greg and Nikki enjoyed the experience. Yes? Me thinks so. Only 14 wines tasted.

So progress towards maturity continues with the warm dry weather in the Loire valley. If this remains the same conditons we should have a good vintage with lower yields. Fingers crossed.

A jolly foray into the wonderful world of Loire wines with Charlotte and Eric. Here’s a pic of Charlotte amongst the vines of Chateau de Chaintres up above Saumur in the red appellation of Saumur Champigny. We tasted loads of sparkles and some deep and luscious reds from the estate. A great afternoon was had by all!

Today the inaugural organic wine fair in Puy Notre Dame, Loire, France  was held in the square beside the church opposite the restaurant Puy a Vin. The owner Pascale has organised the event with ten organic domaines offering their wines. We were also treated to some lively music. Lets hope it continues as a yearly event to showcase these wonderful wines from small local winemakers. You need to support local enterprise whatever it is.
