Afterwards we headed off for a couple of courses at the nearby RSJ Restaurant, where I do some consultancy mainly running the tastings and going to the Loire on buying trips. We started with a bottle of Stéphane Cossais 2005 Le Volagré Montlouis – a delicious combination of richness and minerality with a trace of vanilla showing initially. We also enjoyed the quite gamy, sous-bois 2005 Les Mines Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil from Yannick Amirault. The RSJ kitchen was certainly on-form: my salmon fishcakes followed by duck confit were very good.
