Sadly I have to report that after an extraordinarily difficult year in 2016 due to frost, the Loire has yet again been hit hard in 2017.
This wine is (as it says on the label), L’alliance des générations – a wine made by 2 generations of the Merieau family. Jean-François, his sister Patricia and their father Jacky.
Sebastien du Petit Thouars was on fine form at the Salon des Vins de Loire this week. I dropped by to taste a couple of his Cabernet Francs.
