Domaine du Vieux Pressoir

The pretty Domaine du Vieux Pressoir

Before returning to the Uk we paid a visit to see one of our wine producers. Bruno and Jocelyn Albert at Domaine du Vieux Pressoir. This is one of our original winemakers. Bruno is a passionate winemaker and he consistently makes award winning wines on his Saumur appellation estate.

We had come to wish Jocelyn well after she had to go into hospital. She is in fine fettle. That’s great news. They run a good ship which is always immaculately turned out and very clean which is an essential requirement for a winemaker.

Karin and I tasted the 2009 and 2010 Saumur Puy Notre Dame. We wanted to maintain our purchase of all the Vieux Pressoir vintages from the first in 2007. So now we have 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Have a look at the Vieux Pressoir wines on our website. The white Saumur for example is a lovely fresh clean fruity crisp dry wine. Cheers.
