A few pics and wines of note from the recent Anges Vins tasting held in St Aubin de Luigné in the heart of the Layon valley.
Anges Vins concentrates on natural and organic wines from Anjou
Chenin rules for the whites and Cabernet Franc for the reds with some interesting Grolleau too
Patrick Baudouin of Domaine Patrick Baudoin – top quality producer making some really fine whites and a delicious Anjou Rouge too
Superb precision and minerality in Les Gâts, a Chenin Blanc that has real class
Great to catch up with Eddy Oosterlinck-Bracke at Domaine Juchepie
Joseph Paillé hard at work and a happy father after the birth of his son Anatole in November. We love all Pithon-Paillés wines – they’re handcrafted, natural and consistently delicious
A smiley Toby Bainbridge of Bainbridge & Cathcart
Cuvée La Danseuse is a lovely fruity petillant and Cuvée Rouge aux Levres (lipstick) a juicy grolleau primeur made from old vines.
