Wine Tasting – La dégustation

photo_72_wine_tastingThis weekend, we attended an open day at Cyril Sévin’s vineyard in Mont Près Chambord. This organic wine-grower has an excellent selection of sparkling and still wines. We particularly liked his traditional cour-cheverny made with romorantin grapes and his Impromptu cheverny red, which is 65% pinot noir and 35% gamay. It was one of his wine-loving friends, who conducted the tasting.

C’est un de ses amis passionné de vins qui a animé la dégustation.

@Helen – We enjoy the shiraz in the Barossa. Australia makes some of the best shiraz’ in the world, but I’m not keen on the rieslings and pinot noirs in Australia. They are too different from what I’m now used to here. Comparable Australian wine also costs twice the price unfortunatley!
@William – And that we did!
