L'Hedoniste, Tours

Very enjoyable dinner with Sam Harrop MW, Elodie Bessas and Pierre Pichot at L'Hédoniste in Tours. We chose a bottle of Vincent Gaudry's very minerally and pure Le Tournebride Sancerre 2007, which developed weight in the glass. Vincent is based in Sury-en-Vaux and his wine reminded me of those of François Crochet. L'Hédonisme lists only natural wines and their very interesting lists includes many of the usual suspects.

Will be tasting 2008 samples from the Sauvignon Blanc project this afternoon along with some Cabernet Franc and Côt.
