La Loire 'on the rocks' – iced up! Scenes from the great cold

Extraordinary scenes of ice (Phénomènes extraordinaires) on the Loire near Bourgueil and at Langeais from a video on the Lamé-Delisle-Boucard site. Once you have played their video there are a number of others to click onto including scenes at Orléans.

Also some photos of driving out of Angers last Sunday to go to visit the Luneaus in Muscadet with Chris Kissack (The Wine Doctor) and Tom King (RSJ Restaurant).
