Off on an adventure: Day 22 – Patrice and Juliette Monmousseau + Ogmius
Patrice Monmousseau, Bouvet-Ladubay
'As homage to Etienne Bouvet, who founded the winery in 1851, a special cuvée was created with finest blend of Chenin and Chardonnay 2007 Vintage.
In April 2008, precisely 100 years after his passing away, 3 852 magnums were tapped and kept in the cellars until 2010. This cuvée reveals now its excellence and reverence to Etienne Bouvet. "Ogmius is indeed the greatest homage we could possibly pay to the man" Patrice Monmousseau confesses.'
As I suspect there will be limited time to post on Jim's Loire while we are away – there are posts prepared in advance that will feature pics of Loire producers and may be from elsewhere plus some recently enjoyed bottles.
