Loire Valley Tasting - Ex-Cellars Wine Services returned to the Reserve with a selection of Loire Valley wines from the Christophe Garnier Selection company (CGS).
CGS selects and distributes fine wine from estate owners in a wide variety of Loire Valley appellations. This group of wine makers utilizes a venue called “Vinci Cave”, in Amboise to receive groups and organize tastings.
Mr. Christophe Garnier was on hand to discuss the wines and answer questions. Since 2000, Christophe has been producing his own wine - he created the 3-hectare Domaine de la Croule in the commune of Azay-le-Rideau.
The CGS wines available for this tasting included the following:
Pouilly-Fume from Yvon & Pascal TABORDET
Sancerre from Pierre CHERRIER
Vouvray from Lionel GAUTHIER
Touraine Azay-le-Rideau from Pascal PIBALEAU
Bourgueil from Domaine CHASLE & MENARD
Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil from Pascal & Alain LORIEUX
Chinon from Pascal & Alain LORIEUX
Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine from Pierre-Luc BOUCHAUD,
...among a few other surprises.
My thanks to Nuray Ali from Ex-Cellars and Christophe for hosting this wonderful wine tasting.
