Views of Beaulieu-sur-Layon: early November 2007

More sorting of photos – a long job. Here are a few of Beaulieu-sur-Layon taken in the autumn of 2007.

Great Photos Jim. Enjoying a Huet 'Haut Lieu' Sec 2008 as i read your blog (delicious - ripe apricots with piercing acidity - plenty of life left ahead of it on this showing)

What Camera/Lens did you use for these shots? (apologies if this has been covered before!)

Jim Budd said...

Adrian. Many thanks. Very good white vintage 2008. These photos would have been taken with my Canon Powershot Pro 1, which I have now abandoned for the SLR Canon EOS 5 Mark II.

Cheers Jim.

Dear Jim
I wish you all the best for 2014.
Layon looks so beautiful through your camera. Thanks for these very nice photos.

Hi Emmanuel. Many thanks. Our best wishes to all of the family for 2014 – hopefully an easier vintage than 2012 and 2013!

Will you be at the Salon des Vins de Loire?

A bientôt et bien à toi
