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.

Guests enjoying an evening at Loirewinetours

Loirewinetoursblog loirewinetoursblog.co.uk

A pleasant evening was had at Manoir de Gourin with some lovely guests. We enjoyed enormously Karin’s super supper with  a starter of goats cheese sur le dessus de la pâte feuilletée with garden beetroot and lambs lettuce. followed by chicken á la confit with preserved lemon. French cheese of course and an exquisite summer pudding of all our fruit from the potager. Gooseberry, blackcurrant, strawberry and raspberry. Our wines were all local of course from Saumur except the Bordeaux rosé we bought in Medoc recently made from Cabernet Sauvignon.

Amongst the vines in full song!

Loirewinetoursblog loirewinetoursblog.co.uk

 The joy of encapsulating yourself into the way of life in France is all about how close you become to the real way of life. At loirewinetours we go that extra mile to ensure that what you experience is actually the true french way of life. So have lunch with the winemaker or maybe with his wife and allow yourself to envelope the atmosphere of the reality. I don’t think you get that anywhere else. Perhaps a group trudging after each other. That’s not what we are about. You get the real thing.

Sue, Howard, Lorna, Andrew, Jamie and Martin in the wine room at Manoir de Gourin

 

Loirewinetoursblog loirewinetoursblog.co.uk

Its that time of year when the temperature starts to fall rather quickly and so instead of a warm evening spent on the terrace at Manoir de Gourin we had to retire to the wine room for the aperitif and the dining room for supper. Never mind it was a jolly evening with six of our guests Jamie and Martin, Sue and Howard (Loire wine lovers – great), and Lorna and Andrew. The conversation flowed and we enjoyed Karin’s goats cheese starter with beetroot and lambs lettuce, Pork a la Francais main, cheese, and crepe a la caramel dur. Wines were classic Saumur blanc and rouge (ambassadors of the Loire wines no less), Cabernet de Saumur  – a sublime fruity dry pink, Coteaux du Layon  – a classic mature/noble rot cusp version with the sweet. Yum.

Loirewinetoursblog – wine tours from Paris

loirewinetoursblog.co.uk loirewinetours.com loirewinetoursblog.co.uk

loirewinetoursblog.co.uk

Our loirewinetoursblog today is about our tour with April and Sam who arrived for a day tour from Paris. We took in the majestic chateau of Brissac with its very unusual half demolished/half built facade. The old round towers remaining attached to the new straight elegant facade which punctures the towers. Most unique. The internal rooms are worth viewing including the theatre on the second floor. Of course they had to taste the chateau wines Anjou Village Brissac, Cabernet d'Anjou and Rose d'Anjou medium pinks. April enjoyed the pinks and Sam the red. We then travelled to Saumur country and took lunch at the small but perfectly formed (in terms of wine making) Domaine de l'Enchantoir with winemaker Pierre and his wife Brigitte. Brigitte was able to match their great selection of wines with Karin's lovely lunch of pate and chacuterie starter (Saumur  rouge), Quiche (Saumur Blanc Cuvee Madeleine oaked aged), Chicken and couscous (Saumur Puy Notre Dame), Goats cheeses ( Saumur Blanc), Lemon Tart (Saumur mousseux blanc). The most amazing lemon tart made by Karin to Brigitte's recipe. What a combination. Even Pierre nearly messed up by saying Karin's was better than Brigitte's. No more lemon tart for you Pierre!  Sam and April visited the vineyard and wineroom before we headed out to Montreuil Bellay and views of the chateau and then onwards to Saumur for a private tour of the caves to see how the sparkling wine was made in times gone by and then a mammoth tasting of all the sparkling wines and even some still wines before heading back to Angers for the 18.36 back to Paris. I think the count was 30 wines tasted. WOW.

A great day in the Loire valley just scratching the surface of a beautiful part of France with some great wines. Thanks to April and Sam and Pierre and Brigitte for some wonderful memories. Your good health. Safe journey back to Sam and April and hope to see you both again. Cheers.
