We met this winemaker at the Savigny-sous-Faye Four'Fête.

 

Angélique Léon produces reds and rosés near Chinon. 100% Cabernet Franc. Pretty good too!

 

And amazingly for such a small producer, her wines are available at Maison Vauron in Auckland, NZ!!

 

Strongly recommended for kiwis, although you will probably pay three times what we did... Ha Ha!

A Minervois from Domaine de Cazelles-Verdier, Curée Courtes 2007 showing 14.5% alcohol.  A shiraz/grenache noir blend, excellent with just about anything from the south of France cookbook!

Chenin Blanc, also called Pineau de la Loire, may have come to the Loire Valley more than a thousand years ago. It was firmly established by the 15th century, and like Cabernet Franc, was also praised by Rabelais, the great epicurean writer. Although widely planted in the United States and in South Africa, it attains its highest and most characteristic expression only in a one hundred mile stretch of the Loire Valley between Blois and Savennières. 

Cot is the local name for Malbec, another red grape that makes excellent red wines in other areas, but which is used primarily for blending earthy red wines in the Loire Valley
