Loire wines of the year: Sarah Ahmed and Cathy Shore

Sarah in Sancerre in August 2008

It's that time of December when people devise lists of the best of the year. Wine is no different and here are two lists of best Loire wines tasted and enjoyed in 2010. First from Sarah Ahmed (the wine detective) who selects her top 5. Secondly this from Cathy Shore of the Tasting Room who has chosen their six best of the year.      

I fear Jim's Loire will cop out claiming that I can't make such a short selection, having tasted too many good Loire wines over the course of 2010!
