Our first tasting on the Loire reccy for the TDV 2016 at Domaine de la Bergerie in Champ sur Layon. Fantastic tasting with Anne Guégniard.
On day 2 of the reccy, we had morning tastings in Chinon, starting at Domaine de la Noblaie.
Our next Chinon tasting was at Bernard Baudry – with his son and Matthieu who is now in charge! Superb wines that we will be looking to import.
Domaine Huet was our one and only tasting in Vouvray – and it was an absolute belter. A fantastic tour and tasting with Johan Le Calonnec.
We then headed to Sancerre on Day 3 and visited Domaine Henri Bourgeouis in Chavignol. We were looked after by Alban de Gérin – and we even bought a few magnums for the long journey home!
The last tasting on the reccy was at Serge Dagueneau & Filles in Pouilly sur Loire. Here we tried some terrific wines, the first being an indiginous grape variety ‘Chasselas’ – that was really excellent.
