Lost in the Loire 2015 – Day 3

First stop was the region’s most famous name – Didier Dagueneau.

Only two of these wooden eggs were made and Dagueneau has one of them – a piece of art.

The flinty vineyard that forms part of their most sought-after wine – Silex.

Getting close to the soil in their other premium white – Pur Sang.
Vineyard right next to grazing land – very interesting.

Next was a visit to the consistent and impressive Alphonse Mellot. Emmanuelle Mellot took us around. Beautiful, classy sauvignon blanc this.

Last stop was Francis Cotat in Chavignol.
He didn’t want his picture taken – shy chap – unique, high quality wines.
