Decanter World Wine Awards: Day One for Loire
The Loire panel had a good day yesterday@the Decanter World Wine Awards 2014 starting with some sparkling wines, then onto Muscadet before progressing to a range of Sauvignon Blancs. The Sauvignons ranging from IGPs through Touraine to Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. We ended with a short flight of various reds mainly Pinot Noir based. Although we didn't award any golds, we found a number of silver, bronze and commended wines. We quickly got to grips with our iPads with only the occasional technical fault holding us up.
Unfortunately Nigel Wilkinson is ill, so his place on the panel was taken by Stephen Skelton MW. Chris Kissack and Stephen Skelton MW will be on today's panel along with Chris Hardy from Majestic.
