Jimmy's Lovely Loire
Wine school founder and passionate Loire enthusiast, Jimmy Smith, has created an evening of hand selected top drops from his recent and past travels of the spectacular wine region. He is emptying his cellar just for you lot! The tasting will unearth a wide diverse selection of fantastic wines that have rocked Jimmy's world over the past decade - so there will be new discoveries as well as some old superb favourites.
Jimmy has selected wines from classic areas as well as up-and-coming places. We'll taste world-class Chenin Blancs from Vouvray including Domaine Huet, Vincent Careme and Peter Hahn's Clos de la Meslerie; these have all been wines that have consistently featured on the boss's tastings in the past, as well as making up a fair chunk of his cellar. We'll also taste Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc from the wonderful Chateau Yvonne made by the very talented Mathieu Vallée. Jimmy also discovered some delightful wine from the Central Vineyards from the consistent Domaine Henri Pelle in Menetou-Salon. Another new discovery was the biodynamic estate in the Fiefs Vendéens called Domaine Saint-Nicolas crafting a wide range of superbly crafted wines from varieties such as Negrette, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc.
Wines will range in age from two to ten years old, and are of the highest quality across white, red, rose, sparkling and sweet. There will be ten wines on the tasting, with a full presentation from Jimmy Smith, with a selection of local foods such as goats cheeses. DO NOT MISS!
