Gosh. Toms plums and figs all in one basket from the potager at Manoir de Gourin. We have had such a great summer at Manoir. Lets thank those local bees from Eric who have supplied us with all that pollination process. Thanks bees all.

The harvest is coming to an end for the plums. For the figs we have a second crop and the tomatoes continue to come. So many. Loads of toms for salads, roasting, bruschetta  and Arrabiata sauce for the winter. Delicious.

As I confirmed in my last blog post, the grape harvest for the sparkling Methode Traditionelle started on Monday 28 August. Ridiculously early (last year it was the 19 September) as we have had such hot dry weather over most of the summer. I popped over to an Anjou estate yesterday with some wine tour guests and witnessed the harvest of Chardonnay for the Saumur sparkling appellation. I tried the juice with the winemaker and he gave the acid level at 6.6% and the potential alcohol at 11.5% so just about right; it certainly does not need to be any more maturity. Funnily enough the winemaker missed the first day of the harvest as he was still on holiday!

The first Bans des Vendanges for this year has been issued for the 28 August. This is the first date under AOC rules from when vine growers are able to start the harvest and it is normally the grapes for the sparkling wine that are picked first for the methode traditionelle as these are harvested at around 11% potential alcohol ie less sugar in the juice. At full maturity the potential will be more like 12% plus. This is a full three weeks earlier than last year and this could turn out to be a good vintage indeed for the Loire. Fingers crossed for just a few more weeks of lovely weather.

An evening with guests at our local bistro Le Puy a Vin in the lovely town of Puy Notre Dame. Its a fully organic place so both wine and food are organic. Ian, Daniel, Ruth and Mandy had all been on one of our wine tours so were very adept at choosing the wines. An Anjou blanc from Chateau Bois-Brincon and a Chinon Blanc both chenin grape wines of course. My choice a Cour-Cherverny from Touraine with its own grape variety Romorantin. It has an intense mineral taste not dissimilar to Chardonnay to which it is related.

A super sunny day for checking out the delights of the wines of the Loire valley with Amanda, Debbie, Ian, Neil, Daniel and Ruth. Such a variety that you would be hard pressed not to find one that you will enjoy. Our guests sampled the delights of Anjou blanc and rouge, two IGP’s sauvignon blanc and chardonnay, two pinks dry and demi-sec, three sparklers and three luscious sweets. Wow.
