Salon des Vins de Loire – Jean-Francois Mérieau
It’s a while since we caught up with Jean-Francois Mérieau. We’re big fans of his wines and are really excited he’s now only half an hour away from us.
What are we drinking this week? Clos de L’Etoile 2010 from Arnaud Lambert
We’re big fans of Arnaud Lambert’s wines. Last night we enjoyed a bottle of his top red, Clos de l’Etoile 2010 which is a Cabernet Franc from the Saumur appellation.
Pithon-Paille’s domaine to be called Domaine Bel Argus
Pithon Paillé’s former domaine will be called Domaine Bel Argus, named after the tiny rare blue butterfly that can be found among the vines of Les Treilles.
What are we drinking this week? Tue le Boa from Jean-François Merieau
Off-beat to say the least. Jean-François Merieau’s Tu le Boa is an extraordinary wine. In 2000 he made just 1500 bottles from tiny yields (around 20hl/ha) of Sauvignon Blanc.
