Livre d’Or “Best of all was Brian’s Wine Tour and Tasting”!

This week we had the great pleasure of welcoming Robert and Maxine from Massachusetts, and Leah and Benjamin from Washington DC, USA to Le Clos des Guyons.
Wine Tasting in the Loire

Wine Tasting in the Loire

Connoisseurs on many French wine regions, this was Robert and Maxine’s twelfth visit to France.
They arrived eager to sample the Loire Valley wines and spent an afternoon at the Domaine de la Paleine in Puy Notre Dame, one of our favourite wine producers, under the professional guidance of Brian who talked them through the appellations and diverse range of wines.
What a great afternoon with lots of ‘favourite’ wines including the fabulous Casta Diva with its stunning flavours of oak, tropical fruit, lemon and honey- apparently a perfect match for their lobsters in Massachusetts, so sad they can’t take a case back home with them!!
Also during the week Benjamin and Leah celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary and so we opened a ‘special’ bottle of 1990 Chenin Chez Robert for aperitifs on their arrival.
They left a few comments in our Livre d’Or.
Sheila and Brian,
“We all have had a wonderful visit to the Loire Valley.  We enjoyed visiting the Troglodyte Villages, Saumur, the Mushroom Caves. etc., but the best of all was Brian’s Wine Tour and Tasting where we discovered the wines of the region!  The food and wine of this area was a revelation!  The accommodation was excellent and a wonderful base from which to explore the region”.
Thank you. It made us happy to read your kind comments and It’s been a pleasure to welcome you all to Le Clos des Guyons in Puy Notre Dame!
