Sancerre and Pouilly-sur-Loire from a helicopter

A first glimpse of the butte of Sancerre

Following the second tasting for the Concours Mondial du Sauvignon this morning in Blois there was a helicopter trip to Sancerre, which included an overflight above the vineyards of Pouilly. Here few of the photos from the trip.  

Getting closer 

Chavignol comes into sight plus vineyards above Saint-Satur in the distance
