Autumn Loire Valley Showcase

If you're looking for wines to get you through the seasonal transitions, the Loire Valley is the place to be.

That's why we held a springtime Loire Valley showcase in March... and it's why we're turning back to our all-star Loire producers this weekend for a tasting and sale featuring a line-up of spiced reds and stony whites perfect for autumn!

This time, we'll turn to an (almost) entirely different group of winemakers to deliver some fantastic cooler-weather wines.

The one holdover from our springtime tasting will be Pierre Morin, a passionate second generation vigneron who has been modestly producing top-notch wines for decades, whose 2015 Sancerre Ovide is crisp, expressive, and intensely mineral.

Venturing just outside Sancerre, we'll pour a 2017 Coteaux du Giennois rosé with lots of apricot and peach from Clement and Florian Berthier, as well as a creamy, balanced, 90-point Pouilly-Fumé from Serge Dagueneau.

Finally, we'll head to Chinon (Marc Plouzeau) and Bourgeuil (Yannick Amirault) for characteristically layered reds brimming with dark fruit, earthy, tobacco, and spice; and to Anjou (Chateau de Bois-Brincon) for a high-class white with flavors and aromas of stone fruit and citrus.

You can find more details here on the wines we'll be pouring on Saturday, including tasting notes and special pricing.
