2016 Loire frost – nos pensées et condolences aux nos amis vignerons ligériens but let the good times roll again!

 L'Amour toujours L'Amour

The news this week has been grim and there will be time tomorrow to post an update on the damage caused by the frost of 27th April. Now, however, at the weekend it is the moment to remember some of the good times that will surely return despite today's darkness. My Decanter news report on frost here.

Let the good times roll encore !
