TN: Notes from a Loire tasting

carswell | Apr 12, 2010 03:39 PM

Rough notes from last week's tasting, which was devoted exclusively to wines from the Loire valley. Thinking back on it sets my mouth watering, a sign of both the overall high level of winemaking in the region these days and the refreshing, food-friendly quality of Loire wines as a group. They also remain astoundingly affordable.

All bottles are currently available at the SAQ. Most are recent arrivals; a few, especially the 2005s, have been around for longer and are nearly sold out. Prices include sales taxes (13%) and are in Canadian dollars (at parity with the U.S. dollar these days but probably between US$0.90 and $0.95 when most of the wines were purchased and priced).
