Bourgueil back to 1893 plus news of lunacy@Hermitage

The tasting deep in the cellars of Lamé-Delisle-Boucard

Bourgueil 2011-1893
In early June Les 5 du Vin spent a very enjoyable weekend in Bourgueil and had an amazing tasting spanning three centuries in the cellars of Lamé-Delisle-Boucard. My post this week for Les 5 du Vin covers this demonstration that some Loire reds do have a remarkable but still little known potential to age magnificently.    


Lunacy on the Hill of Hermitage 
Protests over the plans to build a 60 foot TV aerial on the top of the hill continue to grow. See piece here on The Wine Society's blog by Marcel Orford-Williams. 

There is also a Facebook page here devoted to saving the hill and stopping the transmitter project. 

If you haven't already done so, please sign the petition against this project here. To date there are 990 signatures.
