Off to Tours tomorrow

Signals@the Gare de Saint-Pierre-des-Corps

Early start tomorrow as heading back to the Loire – to Tours for the Sauvignon Blanc project tasting. As I get there earlier there are two visits in Montlouis set up for me – to Laurent Chatenay, whose wines I've tasted and enjoyed, and to Xavier Weisskopft (Le Rocher des Violettes), whose reputation I know of but whose wines I have not yet tasted. Should be a good afternoon. Then will be hooking up with Sam Harrop MW and Elodie Besseas, in charge of the technical aspects at InterLoire.
