Just a quick visit today to see the progress of the vines in the picturesque clos of Chaintres.
Richard Desouches is currently galavanting in Australia selling his wines to them down under. We wish him well and look forward to a safe return so that we can discuss and taste the new 2010 vintages at the chateau. On his return we will review the wines. Watch this space.
Our red sparkling wine went down a storm at LBWF last weekend. One Marylebone, a converted church, looked amazing. Our glass bar was amazing and showed off our wines to perfection. Simon, Ben and I, with the help of Wendy, served over 500 glasses. Fortunately, Rhubarb, the wedding and party caterers, supplied and washed the very elegant glasses. Many thanks to them.
Lots of visitors to our bar liked the medium dry red, cuvee “Chateau de Chaintres” 2007, a Saumur Champigny AOC wine from Chateau de Chaintres, a natural accompaniment to red meats and game. Also our lovely dry rosé from Domaine de Rocheville “Le Troubadour” 2009 a Cabernet de SaumurAOC wine, perfect with pork, poultry and cheeses. K
