2011 Loire vintage: a lunchtime interlude by the Layon

CRM relaxes by the Layon near Rablay-sur-Layon

Even when rushing around trying to see as many producers as possible a lunchtime stop is essential and where better to stop than by the tranquil River Layon – here in a quiet spot just to the west of the very pretty village of Rablay. We had the river to ourselves apart from someone fishing about 200 metres away. 

A simple picnic – some good bread, paté, cheese and a tomato or two – no need for anything more complicated! 

 Quiet, slow flowing Layon – a wonderfully restful, pastoral spot 

Could have spent the afternoon here .....
