Around Bourgueil today – flowering, Café de la Promenade, tasting at Chevalerie

Flowering well underway at Château Minière

Laurent Herlin in Lilliput
Sadly Laurent is largely giving up his domaine following a 
succession of difficult vintages
He is keeping on his around one hectare 
vineyard that he owns and will return to his IT work
Understandable but such a great shame!

The bar @Café de la Promenade, Bourgueil
Since taking over from Ludo and Sophie, Norah and Sam 
have put la Promenade on a more professional basis, 
although there is less bohemian chic 
We had a very good meal here tonight.
