Amazing 'Loire Valley Wines' at Tasting in New York on Thursday

I had the pleasure and privilege to attend a Loire Valley Wine tasting organized by the Loire Valley Wine Bureau in New York City. It took place at the Altman Building in Chelsea. With the weather sunny and in the 70's, Chenin Blancs, Roses and Sauvignon Blanc made perfect sense. I was especially impressed by offerings by J.Mourat who actually are in Vendee, Christophe Baudry & Jean-Marie Dutour, Domaines et Saveurs, Danielle de L'Ansee and Les Celliers de Ceres. The rich Reds of Domaine Wilfrid Rousse also got my attention. Anjou_cave All in all, most wines offered character and variety. They illustrate the points made by the film Mondo Vino on the importance of Terroir. Most amazing many of these wines are not even distributed in the US. They also offer excellent value.
It was the first leg of a 3 city roadshow.The other two dates are Los Angeles on May 1st and San Francisco on May 3rd. Visit the Loire Valley Wine Bureau website for registration and information.
If you write about wine, sell it, purchase it, distribute it, I recommend you attend one of their California dates.

I will go over my tasting notes in more detail over the next couple of weeks
