Lovely zing off this rose, crisp, clean 100% Pinot Noir, lovely with the Cheese Platter in Whelehans.
Jancis Robinson wasn’t too keen on this – preferring their standard Sancerre – but I am. Not cheap but quality shines. John brought this to dinner.
A suggestion from Provence that Saignee produced Roses aren’t the real deal.
Le Domaine du Pré Semelé
An accomplished austere Sauvignon from the Pre Semele Domaine in Maimbray about 5 km north of Sancerre. Delicious
We presented this to the Bartleys though I think John prefers his Cono Sur Chardonnay!
This was the white wine offering at the post Golf Dinner for the ABGS TABS Fundraiser in Woodenbridge.
Lovely fruit, crisp finish, well made – an ideal compliment to the Steak Frites the team enjoyed after a hot hard day’s Scrambling .
Great company, good weather and not too shabby Golf (though not up there with the Bandits from a scoring pov).
Thanks Ian, John & Philip.
We sipped this as part of our preparations for the Loire Valley June Visit.
Very striking; I think the choice of Agrum to describe the nose is inspired: tropical, grass, grapefruit, Mango, and Lemons. Flinty, dry.
Morish with plenty to look forward to.

Crisp, Clean Finish. Lesley liked it. Tesco €9. More here.
Like most things that come from the Loire, delicious. Lovely fruit & Acid, Tesco (obviously) on offer @ €9
Difficult. Tasted like the look on Lesley’s face when she switches on R4 Longwave to discover they’re covering the Cricket! Avoid. In fairness, it was too old but should have aged better.
