The beautiful village of Le Thoureil is a 15 minute walk from us here at le tasting room. It’s always calm and serene whatever the weather, whatever the time of year. We always drive through the village on our way back from the station in Angers after collecting clients who have come down from Paris for a wine tasting day trip.

Recipes from Le Tasting Room’s kitchen – Puy lentils with lardons and thyme
We often serve these lentils as a side to duck confit, roasted Toulouse sausages or griddled salmon. As time has gone by I have modified the recipe to make it easier and less time consuming. You can make them the day before and reheat gently when serving so they are great to do when you have people over.22 May, 2018

The sweet wines of the Loire valley
Naturally produced sweet wines require lots of hard work in the vineyard. Chenin Blanc is so suited to sweet wine with its naturally high acidity and lovely grapefruity bitterness that comes from sinking its roots deep into the schistous slaty soils of Anjou (its great on limestone too!).26 Apr, 2014
Wine Education – sediment in red wine, should I worry?

Life in the Loire on lock-down. 20th April. Day thirty seven.
I lay in bed listening to the blackbird singing loudly in the garden this morning. He sits on the top of our gate post. A little treat to start the day.21 Apr, 2020
