Life in the Loire on lock-down. 2nd May. Day forty nine.

Good restaurants in and around Amboise – La Part Belle, Rochecorbon
It can be tricky to find good restaurants in areas that receive a lot of tourists. It pays to leave the main tourist drag and explore the local villages.
Salon des vins de Loire – tasting with Mathieu Cosme
We were delighted to taste with Mathieu Cosme at the Salon. He’s based in our village and his vineyards are just a short stroll from our house in Noizay.
3 weeks after moving in, we’re finally beginning to make some progress. The cardboard boxes are unpacked and the salon and tasting room are decorated.
Salon des Vins de Loire
And the 2018 vintage in the Loire? What can I say? You’re going to find some amazingly ripe and full bodied wines at amazing prices from this vintage.
