The Black Dog Team Lawman and Si Man

Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

   I had chance to taste some great wine on Tuesday night at a Mahjong match at which I was partaking with a Lawman of note and variety. He and I did some good moves and came out sort of in the middle we won one match against two each for the Cunning Cougars ladies team and the Terrible Tigers mens team. Our attire proved somewhat of a non event as I had commissioned some team shirts for the Black Dogs of Lawman (my partner) and Si Man (moi) and we changed at the interval without ceremony but it took some minutes before we were recognised in our regalia!

Unfortunately, and I am sure you know how it is, I forgot what we were drinking and completely forgot to note the bottles. It was a Burgundy and Pomerol I think. Sorry Ha Kan Do Chairman and Lawman. Maybe you can enlighten me? The Antier Montlouis Chenin 2005 was good.  Chenin is a great white wine for keeping. Sweet yes but also sec. It looses its acidity and turns into a different kettle of fish as it were! Sublime and creamy.

Wine blog ing is fun with Grainger’s wine regularly to catch up on the latest with the wine scene or something quite different.  You never know what might appear.

    Its nearly May already and time to gear up for our wine tour season. Already we are busy next week with some Australian and American guests. If you are in Paris for a stay why not jump onto the TGV train from Montparnasse station at around 8am  to Angers. Its only one and a half  hours and we take you on a tour around the historic area of Anjou (the plantagenets and all that). You get to see the chateau at Angers, tours the famous sweet wine vineyards of the Layon and the tallest chateau in the Loire. Chateau Brissac where you are also able to taste the wines they produce. What a day to remember.

The month of May is rapidly approaching and we start our 2014 wine tours soon. If you are looking for something different and unusual this year why not have a look at our wine tours. www. loirewinetours.com  There are a number of ways you can tour with us. If you are staying in Paris then all you need to do is book a train to Angers and we will pick you up for a tour of the Anjou appellation area and you will be able to spend some time sightseeing in the area at the tallest Chateau in the Loire and also at the famous Angers castle.

See you in 2014.
