The Cooks got organic certification from the Soil Association in 1982 and in 2010, after long consideration, moved to being biodynamic and are certified by Demeter. After Montpellier the Cook equipe will meander and potter their way up to the Loire Valley. Here they will be one of the exhibitors at the Demeter Salon that will be at the Parc des Expositions at the same time as the salon des Vins de Loire and La Levée de la Loire.
I tasted their range – 2013 sparkling (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), white, rosé and red. I liked the clean, fresh, easy drinking 2014 Orion – a white disease resistant variety. Also the vibrant sparkling wine, which is nicely austere in the finish, and the easy drinking red 2014 Corýmbus – a blend of Rondo, Regent and Dornfelder.
