Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.
So a good grounding in some basic facts of the wines of the Loire valley. Actually its not so complex if you look at the appellations and grape varietals. Just three whites. Melon in Muscadet, Chenin in Anjou, Saumur, Chinon, Vouvray and Montlouis, and Sauvignon in Touriane and Sancerre, (plus Chardonnay for sparkling) and just one main red Cabernet Franc. Yes I know we have Pinot Noir in Sancerre and Gamay in Anjou and Malbec in Touraine and so on. I know there are nuances but this gives someone the bare facts that will be sufficient when studying a wine list or a wine shop shelf for style and grape variety.
So Liz and Tom, and Kate and Dug enjoyed a morning in Saumur Country. That’s Chenin for white, Cabernet for pink and red. You don’t need to know any more on grape variety. Styles yes dry and fresh, demi sec and sweet whites, demi-sec and sec pinks, fruity reds with some oak ageing, sparkling Saumur and Cremant, white ,pink and reds (VMQ). Easy.
