July 17, 2018 - Exploring the Loire Valley Wine Tasting
The Loire is the garden of France, the land of castles, the place where the purest French is spoken. And it is the home of some of the most delicious, delectable, enjoyable French wines. That’s a serious assertion, considering the counter-claims of so many other French wine regions. But Loire wines have lightness, airiness and freshness that put a spring in the taste buds of those who love powerful Rhônes or elegant Burgundies.
With prices remaining reasonable for most Loire wines, this is a great time to discover crisp, grassy Sauvignon Blanc; versatile Chenin Blanc in all its styles; fresh and fruity Melon; and the surprising richness and age-worthiness of the Loire’s Cabernet Francs.
