RSJ Restaurant: Yannick Amirault and Jean-Pierre Chevallier 13th April

There are still a few places left for chance to meet and taste the wines of Yannick Amirault (Bourgueil and Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil) and Jean-Pierre Chevallier (Château de Villeneuve – Saumur and Saumur-Champigny) over a special dinner at the RSJ Restaurant in London's Waterloo.

Yannick and Jean-Pierre are among my favourite Loire producers and both make remarkable wines. This should be a fascinating evening and rare opportunity to meet these two excellent producers.
