2010 Salon des Vins de Loire: photos from Day 3

Paul Buisse toasts his impending retirement

Long time producer and négociant in Montrichard, Paul Buisse sold his business to Pierre Chainier last August with the arrangement that Paul would stay on for a year. One of the stalwarts of the Salon, there will have to be someone else looking after the stand in 2011. Paul is not retiring completely as he will be doing some consultancy work. Vinification will continue at the Paul Buisse premises in Montrichard but the wines will be bottled at the Pierre Chainier installation at Amboise.
