Il y a plus de quinze ans lorsque j’ai visité le château de Chaumont pour la première fois avec Jean Michel, il m’a montré “sa” Loire. A l’époque je l’ai trouvée plutôt austère. Aujourd’hui c’est devenu “ma” Loire aussi.

Chaumont has by far the best situation of any of the Touraine Loire Valley chateaux in my opinion, being almost the only one that overlooks the ‘wild Loire’. Simon didn’t respond positively to the Loire river landscape initially. It’s only been in the last year that he has started coming around. Like many people, he prefers the Cher.
