Celebrating London's first Muslim Mayor – Sadiq Khan

Crémant de Loire Rosé, Lamé Delisle Boucard

Last night we opened a bottle of the Crémant de Loire Rosé from Lamé Delisle Boucard to celebrate the election early on Saturday morning of Sadiq Khan as the new Mayor of London and the first Muslim to be elected to the post. Sadiq Khan was elected by a landslide despite a very unpleasantly racist campaign by the Conservatives that has been subsequently widely criticised by various senior Conservative figures. Khan has been impressively dignified.  

Lamé's Crémant Rosé is made from 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and spends 24 months sur latte. Lovely delicate strawberry and raspberry fruit.

Proud to be a Londoner!

I'm not a Londoner, but I am proud of the decision made by Londoners!

That's 2 things I'd be happy to have in our city here in the US: a Muslim mayor and a bottle (or 2) of Lame Delisle Boucard Cremant. I've been buying their Bourgueil here for years, but as far as I know, their Cremant has never been available.

Bob. Thanks. You will have to treat yourself to a visit to Lamé and lunch at Vincent and Olivia's next door.

Jim, if we're ever back in the area, I'll definitely have to do that. We spent one night in Bourgueil 3 years ago (at Cafe de la Promenade), and only had time for one winery visit. I know the US importer for Domaine de la Chevalerie, so that became our one visit.
