A lovely afternoon today tasting loads of wonderful wines in the Aniou appellation of the Loire valley. Hubert makes a great range of wines for the IGP whites of Chardonnay and Sauvignon and the classic Anjou Blanc from Chenin aged in old oak. Demi sec  and sec pinks from a mix of Gamay, Grolleau and Cabernet Franc, Anjou and Anjou Village reds from Cabernet Franc, Saumur Brut and Cremant sparklers and a red sparkler, and his range of three sweet Coteaux du Layon. Wow. Our guests Philip and Sara and Paul and Elaine enjoyed the journey.

A jolly in the vineyards of the Loire valley today with some rather pleasant weather for six wine tour guests all out to enjoy the delights of good french wine. The morning jaunt was to the village appellation of Saumur Champigny where we tasted a range of the reds, a white Saumur chenin and a blanc de noir sparkling Cremant de Loire. After my informative talk in the wine room at Manoir de Gourin it  was off to a Saumur Puy Notre Dame village appellation for more reds, sparklings from Saumur mousseux blanc and rosé over lunch with the vigneron before launching ourselves into the midst of the vines from where I took the pic.  A final tasting of cabernet d’anjou rounded off the day. Wow and our guests are still enjoying themselves in the courtyard at Manoir at this late hour of 10pm.
