I'm not an expert on Loire Valley wine, far from it! However, whilst catching the evening sun at the Chateau, I know when I'm drinking something really good; unfortunately for my husband...........
We are thrilled to see one of our favourite producers in Chinon, Domaine de la Noblaie, has made it into Decanter's recommended Top Loire Cabernet Franc Wines with a whopping 90 points. Pierre de Tuf, Chinon 2012, needs to be laid down for three to fours years before it is at its peak.
Must make a note to self not to use it for the cooking, I got myself into trouble for doing that before!
It is always exciting to see the recommendations for the local area, and there are some great recommendations here, if you are looking for something special.
Decanter Top Loire Cabernet Franc Wines
Spring and early summer is a good time to stock up, with only a limited number of bottles made each year unfortunately the stock doesn't last for ever.
