 Now then you lot why did you miss the unmissable at Domaine de L’Enchantoir. The red dinner was an absolute triumph. The organisation by Pierre and Brigitte van den Boom in the caves and the function room, the food and the entertainment were beyond. We had a red wine punch with Brigitte’s nibbles (no not nipples – that was yesterday) and the first part of the entertainment by the caberet ‘Le vin, c’est beaucoupplus que le vin’ in the caves all lit up by candles so a great atmosphere. Then to the function room for the red dinner. A first course of Brigitte’s red pate with a classic Saumur rouge, a main of red Beouf á la  Bourguignon with the Saumur Puy Notre Dame and cheese (red of course) with the oak aged Clos de Petit Chavannes. Sweet was pears in a red  wine jus with the red VMQ Amarante sparkling cabernet franc. Delicious Pierre and Brigitte. The cabaret continued and interspersed we had turns from Peter and I with some Rabelais (wine related of course), Jacques and Francoise (a song), Peter and I with the Chevalier song, Peter and Maggi with the classic hole in my bucket! It was epic.

Well, well, well, what can I say? It turned out to be a jolly good evening which ended with the assembled tablers agreeing to jointly and equally start a new company called www.nipples.com selling lettuce hats in the UK. Yes that’s right that’s what I said. If you do not know what lettuce hats are then find out in our next blog or so.

Anyway a great fun evening had by all.

the gang with Brigitte after our tour and tasting

 

Loirewinetoursblog loirewinetoursblog.co.uk

 Our tour took in the full process of the making of wine after our visit to the vineyard. So we visited the wine room and discussed the process on reception of the berries for the white, rosé and red grapes and how the white and red grapes are turned into wine. The wine room here is not modern as it was built in the 1920’s with concrete vats. We also visited the caves to see how the wine was originally made below ground. The caves are currently used to age the red and white cuvees in old oak barrels. Our final stop was the tasting room where Brigitte presented the estate wines. Of course we left with a boot full of the lovely wines.
