What we are drinking this week? Exilé 2017 from Lise et Bertrand Jousset
Growers in Montlouis have suffered greatly these past few years leaving many of them in a rather precarious position financially despite their best efforts.
What are we drinking this week? L’Envolée 2011 from Gérald Vallée
As it’s been warm enough to eat outside this week we enjoyed a simple dinner of home made burgers, roasted garlicky plum tomatoes and a fresh green salad. L’Envolée from Gérald Vallée was our wine of choice.
What are we drinking this week? L’Enthousiasme 2014 from Domaine Ogereau
We have a really soft spot for the appellation of Savennières. Home to fine white Chenin Blanc wines, full of character and minerality from impossibly shallow top soils sitting above the schist and slate of the Massif Amoricain.
