'Real' wine: 8th June 2009

Philippe in full flight

Philippe Lubac of Les Caves de Pyrene leding a very successful tasting. All the wines showed well including some that we had thought would be challenging, Sebastien Riffault's Sancerre in particular. Highligthts included Catherine Breton's sparkling Vouvray as an aperitif and the Saumur Blanc from Antoine Foucault.

The Grolleau (Non Vintage 'Le Cousin' Grolleau Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Cousin-Leduc, Olivier Cousin) was really showy - lots of concentration and really interesting. Akmenine Sancerre showed completely differently and didn't have the ozxidised style when we tasted it at Caves de Pyrene tasting in late April.
