• Taged with "La Dive Bouteille"

Getting a grip on the 2016 vintage

Tomorrow starts a crazy few days of wine tasting here in the Loire valley.

La Dive Bouteille

At first I wanted to hate Attention Chenin Mechant 2013. Cloudy and a touch petillant on the palate it has notes of flowers and pears and a gentle sweetness that pops up. Not a traditional wine by any means but I liked it and found myself wondering why. Surely this can’t be right?

La Dive Bouteille 2014

If you’re in the region and interested in wines with a natural leaning then head off down to Saumur this weekend where the annual La Dive Bouteille tasting is taking place.
