Getting a grip on the 2016 vintage
Tomorrow starts a crazy few days of wine tasting here in the Loire valley.
Leduc-Frouin Coteaux du Layon 1976

Domaine Leduc Frouin – Anjou
Sometimes you find a small family run domaine that makes wines that tick all the boxes. Leduc Frouin falls into this category – the wines are great value for money, the welcome at the domaine is always warm, it’s run by a tight family unit of brother, sister and mum and the wines are always reliable, pure, well made.
